The Master of Engineering Practice will be available from 2018 (subject to approval).

Designed for recent graduates and practicing engineers who want to upgrade and update their knowledge in the rapidly changing fields of electronics, materials and processing and mechanical engineering, the Master of Engineering Practice (MEngPrac) is a taught programme that may be completed in either 12 or 18 months.

The programme was developed not only in response to the demand from New Zealand employers for work-ready engineers able to tackle the challenges of the changing global, national and local environments, but to also meet the demand of international students who are looking at improving their employability with a taught masters degree.  The MEngPrac will enable you to work in diverse industries and fields in New Zealand and worldwide.

The programme includes a management component that will equip you with the professional skills demanded by employers. It also includes a capstone research and development project that will allow you to apply your advanced technical skills to an industrially relevant problem. This is a unique opportunity for young professionals to extend their skills and expertise in their chosen field.

Facilities

The University of Waikato School of Engineering’s specialised laboratories includes the Large Scale Lab complex that features a suite of workshops and laboratories dedicated to engineering teaching and research.  These include 3D printing, a mechanical workshop and computer labs with engineering design software.

The Master of Science (MSc) is a two-year degree which encompasses both coursework and research. The first year involves mainly coursework and preliminary research preparation. Students will have the opportunity to contribute to existing fields of research, or to begin to develop new areas.

The MSc can be studied in any of the subjects listed below, and may be taken by a combination of coursework and thesis, or by thesis only. Students who have a Bachelor's degree will complete the MSc by papers and thesis (at least two years of full-time study). Students who have an Honours degree or postgraduate diploma can complete the degree by thesis only (minimum of one year of study).

Subject areas

View the list of subjects offered for the Master of Science (MSc) and the Master of Applied Science (MAppSc).

Structure of the Programme

The degree may be awarded in any of the subjects listed above. With the approval of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Sciences) the degree may be awarded in a subject not listed above.

The programme of study shall be as prescribed for the subject concerned.

A candidate whose qualification for entry to the programme is the degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours or the Postgraduate Diploma in Science or equivalent may achieve the degree after a minimum of one year of further study, normally by completing a thesis or equivalent as prescribed in the MSc Schedule.

A candidate may be exempted from some of the prescribed papers on the basis of previous study.

A candidate shall, before commencing the investigation to be described in a thesis, secure the approval of the Head of the Department concerned for the topic, the supervisor(s), and the proposed course of the investigation.

A candidate may not present a thesis which has previously been accepted for another degree.

A candidate taking the degree by papers and thesis must pass both the papers and the thesis components.

For the thesis, the research should be of a kind that a diligent and competent student should complete within one year of full-time study.

This programme covers practical, advanced concepts – from technological to environmental – related to the light metals reduction industry, especially alumninium. It runs near a smelter – previous locations have included Bahrain, Dubai, and the USA. Having minimal access restrictions allow opportunities for you to work hands-on and witness processes in person. 

Our content is curated for experienced technical and operations staff, many of whom can learn from each other. We boast tutors with decades of industry experience and significant research accolades, and an international focus that allows you to maximise your learning while only being away for three weeks.

Programme structure

This programme runs biennially. It consists of four core courses (60 points) that are completed through a combination of extramural study and an intensive, three-week, residential block course that takes place in a location adjacent to a working smelter (usually in an international location).

It contains three major sections:

  • Section 1 features review and fundamentals assignments (extramural)
  • Section 2 focuses on onsite lectures by world experts on each area of technology. These are interspersed with tutorials, group work, assignments, tests and site visits – this allows you to practice the techniques and concepts. You must complete all four courses in order to meet the programme requirements.
  • In Section 3, you will complete an extramural advanced topics assignment. This is tailored to a specific technical issue of your interest. Sections 1 and 3 are to be completed from your home in approximately six weeks, and they contribute to your final assessment. Detailed feedback will be provided.

Where could this programme take you?

Our students are generally already employed as engineers in the smelting industry, and this programme tops up your technical underpinnings with knowledge of the in-depth processes necessary for career progression. Those intending to work in process control, as opposed to operations, may be particularly interested in the PGCertLMRTech.
