Discover the latest developments in the field of engineering and research a topic of your interest with the Master of Engineering. Complete either a thesis or a research project in engineering.
The Master of Engineering is designed to help you develop your research skills and enhance your knowledge in the field of engineering. There are two pathways: Research (includes a thesis), or Coursework (includes a research project).
We’re proud to be home to a number of internationally renowned research institutes and centres, and many of our students complete their research project in collaboration with these well-known research entities. AUT's expertise in engineering ranges from telecommunications to materials and manufacturing technologies, and from industrial optimisation to engines and vehicles.
Must have completed one of the following with a B grade average or higher, or equivalent:
Applicants must normally have completed an advanced level of calculus at least equivalent to NZQF Level 6.
Applicants to the research pathway are also required to submit a Postgraduate Research Proposal (PGR1 form) before enrolling in the thesis.
There are two pathways:
Students in this pathway will focus on academic research, closely working with one of AUT's well-established research centres. An academic supervisor will be appointed to guide and direct you for the duration of the thesis.
Applicants admitted on the basis of a postgraduate diploma or honours degree who have completed a Research Methods paper may be permitted to enrol directly into the thesis.
Enrolment in papers is subject to meeting all requirements and availability of papers.
