About this program

The Master of Engineering (by thesis only) is a 120 credit qualification for students who have completed the BE (Hons) or PGDipE. It consists of a thesis to the value of 120 credits.


A Ministry of Education report found that:

  • Earnings and employment rates increase with the level of qualification completed
  • Five years after leaving study, most young domestic graduates will be earning above the national median earnings
  • Young masters graduates earn 86 per cent more than the national median
  • Good careers are associated with better health, better wellbeing and more satisfying lives

Master of Engineering structure

You will undertake a course of study which will consist of thesis courses totalling 120 credits.

The Master of Engineering will be awarded with a subject which follows the name of a major in the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree.

Distinction or Merit

Your 120 credit master's degree will carry the award of Distinction, if completed at a superior standard (equivalent to First Class Honours), or Merit (equivalent to Second Class Honours, Division One) if completed within one year of first enrolling in full-time study.

Students enrolling in a thesis commence with part one followed by part two in the next enrolment period. Both parts combine to meet the thesis requirements with a single grade assigned to each part. If the thesis cannot be submitted at the end of the initial part two enrolment, the student must re-enrol in part two (and pay fees) each semester until submission is made, unless you meet the criteria for an extension.
