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 or within three years of first enrolling in part-time study.
