Why study the Master of Engineering Science?

The 21st century is an era of great global and local challenges: climate change and the greenhouse effect, clean energy, reliable water supplies, infrastructure for booming populations, sustainable resource development, efficient and effective communications, to name but a few.
These challenges create tremendous opportunities for a new generation of engineers. This is the dawn of a new engineering age where engineers are part of the solution at all scales from molecular to global.

The Master of Engineering Science (MEngSc) degree is a 3-semester (full-time enrolment at #8 per semester) program. A 1 year (2 semester) program is offered to students who have a four-year degree in the same field. Students in this program are taught by staff who are internationally recognised as leading experts in their fields, using state-of-the-art facilities.
