Master of Engineering Science (MEngSc)
A Masters degree is a great way for practising engineers (and graduates) to give their education, and career prospects, a power boost. If you’re looking to crack that glass ceiling, or simply wanting to move into a more technology management-focused role, why not consider a Master of Engineering Science from UNSW School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.
To be eligible to start a Master of Engineering Science program you need to have a recognised four-year Bachelor degree in an appropriate area of engineering with an Honours 2/2 or equivalent or an average of 65% in performance over the final two years of that degree.
The School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at UNSW offers two specialisations within the Engineering Science program:
The program is flexible and students can choose from a variety of Mechanical and Manufacturing courses to tailor their learning to their own unique specialisation.
The specialisations are available at four levels of qualification:
- Master of Engineering Science Extension (8539)
- Master of Engineering Science (8538)
- Graduate Diploma Engineering Science (5338)
- Graduate Certificate Engineering Science (7338)
These programs require the completion of Units of Credit in the following components: Professional Development for those with limited background, Engineering and Technical Management and Specialisation.
The School offers excellent computer, laboratory and workshop facilities and a highly competent group of academic and support staff who can ensure that a professionally rewarding course of study can be followed.
Areas of Specialisation
This specialisation is designed to integrate essential knowledge areas in engineering, technology and management. It provides graduates with leadership, financial, manufacturing evaluation and project management skills for the diverse areas of technology in today's dynamic marketplace.
It covers topics, methodologies and manufacturing applications that are essential in product and process design. Key areas of study include project management, manufacture and delivery process which are all vital for an organisation that wants to achieve quality, timely delivery, minimum cost and flexible manufacturing.
This specialisation provides an advanced understanding of the practical and theoretical principles relating to design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of machines, plants and factories, including power generation, propulsion or manufacture of goods.
The program is designed for engineering graduates who want to enhance their technical, management and leadership skills. The specialisation covers several courses such as refrigeration and air conditioning, computational fluid dynamics, machine condition monitoring, fracture mechanics, solar energy and automobile engine technology – with an emphasis on contemporary issues such as ecologically sustainable designs.
It also offers project management and technology management electives, which are designed to meet the needs of graduates from a wide range of engineering backgrounds. Students have wide exposure to problems and projects from various industries as well as state-of-the-art relevant software packages.
