Course content

Go deeper into the world of engineering and investigate a topic of interest with the thesis-based Master of Engineering (ME). You'll learn to carry out independent research and further develop your abilities to think critically and creatively and write effectively. Graduate with a professional qualification that will be attractive to a range of employers both in New Zealand and overseas.

The ME is a one-year full-time programme but you can study it part time. You can choose to complete it by doing a 120-point thesis or by doing a 90-point thesis and 30 points of coursework.

Your ME may be endorsed with one of three subjects:

  • Electronic and Computer Systems Engineering
  • Network Engineering
  • Software Engineering

If you have a BE(Hons) degree with First or Second Class Honours or the equivalent, and want to carry out significant research that contributes to knowledge in the field, then the Master of Engineering is right for you.

Learn from the best

Work with and learn from experts in the field who are constantly extending the boundaries of modern engineering knowledge. You'll be taught by staff who are actively engaged in cutting-edge research at New Zealand’s number one ranked research university.

Duration and workload

The ME must normally be completed in 12 months of full-time study, or in two years if you're studying part time.

If you are studying full time, you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students will need to do around 20–23 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working.


Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues. You'll have opportunities to attend events, seminars, workshops and social functions.

The Postgraduate Students' Association can also give you information on study at Victoria and provides a voice for you on campus.


The technological know-how, problem solving and creativity you gain from the Master of Engineering will open up new opportunities for you in your career. You might find work in electronics, robot design or systems development. Other career options include hardware development, programming, software engineering, systems management or research.
