Vanessa Calderon - Master of Engineering Science (Transport Engineering)

I realised that to progress my career I needed to formalise my professional knowledge. There are so many interesting courses to choose from, and those I’ve taken so far are practical and reflective. This is more efficient from a real world perspective.

Vanessa Calderon - Master of Engineering Science (Transport Engineering)

With increases in population and urban sprawl, the need for safe, quick, reliable and efficient transport systems has never been more important. This discipline looks at the planning, functional design, operation and management of transport infrastructure, with a focus on its economic and environmental impact.

 

This program provides students with advanced study options in Transport Engineering. This ranges from transport planning, ITS and land use and risk management and safety, through to network design, demand estimation and sustainability, emissions and health. It’s designed to develop skills in modelling and analysing systems (including passenger and freight) for all types of transport.

 

The Master of Engineering Science 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 does not offer industrial training.

 

The typical program structure comprises sixteen courses, broken down into: four Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, five Advanced Disciplinary Courses, three Research Courses and four Electives.
