Massey’s Master of Engineering Studies is a high-quality programme, combining taught and research courses at a postgraduate level. It is a 120 credit qualification able to be completed in one year full-time.

If you are already working, or your research experience is limited, this qualification will give you the learning you need to take your career to the next level or pursue more in-depth postgraduate research.

Solve real-world problems

While you will gain a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering, the Master of Engineering Studies emphasises on the application of your engineering learnings to complex real-world industrial problems. Massey staff have strong relationships with industry and you can utilise these to find projects of relevance to you.

Unique specialities

The degree will help you gain expertise in an area outside of the focus of your undergraduate qualification, or current employment, or help you progress your career in your area of interest.

You can choose from a number of endorsements. Massey is the only New Zealand university to offer an endorsement/major in innovation management.

Advanced problem-solving skills

An integral part of your learning will be the experience working in a team environment to solve problems at a variety of conceptual levels. You’ll gain the ability to learn independently, analyse industry needs and propose and validate tangible technical solutions, identify when your knowledge of a problem is lacking, and be able access and use the information required.

Access to broad expertise and equipment

As an engineering student at Massey University, you gain access to engineering and advanced technology-related expertise as well as a huge range of equipment and knowledge such as 3D printers and world class mechanical and electronic workshops, state-of-the art microscopic and genomic facilities, horticulture and agriculture expertise, extensive farm networks and a broad range of science, health, business and humanities-related staff. This unique capacity will enable you to build machines and devices for testing hypotheses and develop products in a modern multidisciplinary engineering context.

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Engineering Studies will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge, expertise, and the critical analytic skills needed to define a problem and develop, test, and validate engineering solutions.

In fact, the world engineering originates from Latin ingenium, meaning "cleverness".


This degree will give you the knowledge and ability to become a project leader or system designer in companies of any size.

Sought after by employers

International trends are for employers to reward postgraduate study well, especially in larger enterprises. The skills you learn are increasingly recognised as setting you apart from other potential employees.

Earn more

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
