Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Máster en Ingeniería Mecánica
The Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science program is designed for engineers and graduates wishing to develop and expand their knowledge and skills in their current area of expertise.* This will enable students to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards and to provide opportunities for continuing professional development, as well as the opportunity to interact with those at the cutting edge of their discipline.
Students will add breadth to their knowledge of engineering in general and expand their knowledge and skills in engineering management. Students will develop their technical knowledge and ability to analyse engineering problems. They will also gain further skills in solving engineering problems and justifying professional decisions.
The program articulates to the Graduate Diploma of Engineering Science program with full credit for courses completed in the Graduate Certificate program. Students may exit from this proposed program with a Graduate Certificate award if they have completed the required course requirements.
completion of a recognized bachelor degree
meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
The program is designed to enable students to fulfil a number of needs including:
Updating technical knowledge and skills in an existing engineering specialisation
Acquiring new knowledge and skills in a different engineering specialisation
Developing and expanding knowledge and skills in engineering management
Updating qualifications and knowledge to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards
Providing opportunities for continuing professional development
Providing opportunities for interaction with those at the cutting edge of the discipline
Providing a pathway towards the Master´s program.
Students must complete 24UOC of courses to be eligible for the degree. This degree is offered in the following specialisations (streams):
Civil Engineering Stream
Geospatial Engineering Stream
Specialisations may be broad or narrow, and include options that cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries in the Faculty. Some specialisations may include approved courses outside the Faculty of Engineering. A number of specialisation courses may be offered in both internal and external attendance modes and may be delivered in regular sessions, block or intensive modes on or off campus.
At the discretion of the Program or Stream Authority, students may be required to develop their foundational disciplinary knowledge through enrolment in undergraduate level courses that are deemed appropriate by the Program or Stream Authority. Students will be granted credit towards the program for the satisfactory completion of these courses up to a maximum of 12UOC.
