Master of Engineering Studies in Geotechnical Engineering - MEngSt

Course content

The Master of Engineering Studies in Geotechnical Engineering programme aims to further educate graduate students in the discipline of geotechnical engineering so as to enhance their contribution to engineering practice.

Graduates will be able to take leading roles in planning, evaluating, designing, constructing, maintaining, and managing the geotechnical infrastructure.

The programme also provides valuable background expertise for those wishing to enter into asset management or to begin to pursue a career in research and development.

Programme outline

The Master of Engineering Studies in Geotechnical Engineering programme aims to build on the geotechnical content of the BE (Civil) degree and develop graduates with enhanced ability to contribute to geotechnical engineering practice.

New Zealand is a stimulating country in which to practise geotechnical engineering with its young and varied geology, seismic activity and diverse rainfall patterns. Many unique problems occur here as a result and these present challenges for innovative and novel solutions.

The programme has been designed with courses relevant to the New Zealand geotechnical environment, to fill the needs of the country.

There is a large demand for geotechnical engineers in the local workplace, as well as a worldwide shortage of geotechnical professionals.

Career opportunities

This specialisation aims to address a shortage of suitably trained geotechnical engineering professionals.

Graduates will greatly enhance their ability to practice in the geotechnical engineering field, by extending their education in the area of their specialisation and by upgrading their current skills and training.

The programme will enable graduates to take leading roles in planning, evaluating, designing, constructing, maintaining, and managing the geotechnical infrastructure. The programme will also provide valuable background expertise for those wishing to enter into asset management or to begin to pursue a career in research and development.
