completion of a recognized bachelor degree
meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
The Systems Engineering program aims to allow students to develop a high level of understanding of the principles that shape systems engineering and their implementation through the design, development and application phases.
Students undertaking the MSysEng are required to take 8 coursework courses (48 UOC) from the courses set out below. Students must complete four compulsory courses (24 UOC) and four elective courses (24 UOC) from the list below (or from the electives in the various specialisiations in the MSysEng program).
