The Master of Engineering Studies caters for professional engineers seeking advanced technical training and is a taught master's degree with no thesis requirement. The MEngSt comprises a combination of 400 and 600-level courses that enables candidates to study a broad range of topics in their general area of expertise.
Mechanical engineers design and develop everything that you think of as a machine - from airplanes to wind turbines to dishwashers, as well as everything from macroscopic (large) down to nanoscopic (very small). Mechanical engineers are systematic thinkers with a sense of social responsibility that leads them to constantly seek better ways of doing things.
Postgraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering offer students specialised training in research and creative engineering skills. Students can develop professional experience in areas such as product design, manufacturing, building services, power generation, transportation, and medical technologies.
The MEngSt is made up of 120 points:
UC offers the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) qualification in a number of Engineering disciplines including Civil Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Fire Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
Postgraduate study can bring many career benefits eg, specialist skills and enhanced knowledge, possible into specific occupations, higher starting salary/progression rates, research capability/achievement, and evidence of high academic attainment/self-discipline.
