Siaham Siaj  – Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical Engineering)

I chose to undertake a postgraduate degree at UNSW to be exposed to new technologies, cultures and an entirely different academic system where I could truly test myself. My time as a postgraduate student certainly proved to be a great challenge.

Siaham Siaj – Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical Engineering)

Mechanical engineering offers the unique opportunity to combine various disciplines together in order to develop and improve products, processes and systems –in short, to change the world for the better. Our programs provide students with the knowledge, tools and strategies to design engineering systems and manage a product’s lifecycle.

This program covers the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of machines, tools, plants and factories. This includes power generation, propulsion and manufacture.

The Master of Engineering Science program promotes flexible learning as a keystone of the program – it is designed for students who already have a four year accredited engineering degree and who now wish to broaden their job prospects through cross training, re-training or specialisation. This program takes two years to complete (students may be granted credit for some courses. Those with a degree or extensive professional experience in a related area can apply for credit of up to 50% of a program); it is a non-accredited program, and industrial training is not required.

The typical program structure comprises 16 courses, broken down into: four Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, three Research Courses and four Engineering and Technical Management Electives.

Required Background

Students need a recognised four year Bachelor degree in engineering with a minimum 65% average in Mechanical Engineering or similar.
