Description

The Master of Engineering Science Degree is a postgraduate coursework program suitable for science and engineering graduates. Students have the opportunity to create the kind of Masters program that best meets their requirements through the choice of the specialisations.

These specialisations fall into three categories, covering Technical Courses, Management and an Engineering Project (which may be conducted in the work place or on campus). Technical courses are offered in the areas of Mineral Processing and  Energy.

Students who have completed a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Science or a Graduate Certificate in Innovation and Commercialisation (and meet the MEngSc entry requirements) are required to complete another specialisation to be awarded the Master of Engineering Science. Please note: Students are unable to combine Mineral Processing with the Energy specialisation.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.

Admission Requirements

  • Four year Bachelor of Engineering degree (or equivalent), from an internationally recognised University.
  • Three year Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) with Honours and/or demonstration of  relevant work experience (minimum of two years), in a discipline related to the proposed area of study.
  • There are no accreditation requirements; consequently there is no need for pre-requisites to be established.

Minimum English Language Proficiency Requirements

Applicants who do not speak English as a first language must demonstrate that they meet the University’s English proficiency requirement.  Further information regarding English language proficiency requirements can be found at the English Proficiency Policy at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/policy/000104.html

The Engineering Project is available on campus day-time delivery and in the work place, with employer support.

Requirements and Structure

The Master of Engineering Science program consists of courses chosen from two specialisations, each of 40 units.  Students must successfully complete a minimum of 80 units of study, consisting of two 40 unit specialisations.Please note: 1) Students are unable to combine Mineral Processing with the Energy specialisation.2) Students who enter the Master of Engineering Science and who have already successfully completed GENG6005 will be required to undertake an additional 10 units of study. Please contact the Student Hub or Program Convenor for further information.

Transition Arrangements

A program revision was implemented for 2012, and some courses were removed from the program and replaced with new courses.  For course replacement information, students must make note of details contained under ‘Transitional Arrangements’ in Course Handbooks.  Continuing students affected by the program revision or who are experiencing transition problems are advised to consult with the relevant Program Officer.
