What will I learn?

Our technical postgraduate program for engineers wanting to combine further studies in their field, with management or business. This program can be taken in 2 years.

The Master of Engineering Science (Management) is designed for applicants with a background in engineering. You will have an engineering degree and be looking to expand your skills in leadership and/or management. You may also be looking to broaden career options to a career beyond engineering.

Your future is in industry, as an engineer with deeper technical skills in your engineering field, or you will be looking to move into leadership or management roles.

Civil Engineering

The Master of Engineering Science (Civil Engineering) provides options for in-depth study in the broad engineering fields of structural, water and environmental, geotechnical and transportation engineering.
