Upcoming Start Dates:
This research-focused degree is designed for graduates who wish to do further research and develop an innovative solution to an engineering question. Excellence in advanced engineering design, research and development skills are core features of the degree.
If you enrol in an ME via the Faculty of Science & Engineering you can major in Engineering, and your thesis topic may come from our wide range of study areas such as biological engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, materials engineering, environmental engineering and electronic engineering.
The Faculty of Science & Engineering fosters collaborative relationships between science, engineering, industry and management. The Faculty has developed a very strong research base to support its aims of providing you with in-depth knowledge, analytical skills, innovative ideas, and techniques to translate science into technology in the real world.
Graduates will have a thorough understanding of foundation engineering principles and the ability to acquire new knowledge. They will have specialist knowledge and practical engineering skills in a given engineering area,and be able to apply those skills. They will be able to communicate clearly and effectively in a professional and technical context, using appropriate media, with their colleagues and clients. They will also be able to systematically and creatively design systems that provide appropriate practical solutions to engineering problems, including being able to define needs and source appropriate data to service those needs.
