About this course

This programme equips students with problem-solving, modelling, analytical and computing skills that are relevant to many global industries. The Department of Engineering Science also has strong collaborative ties to the Geothermal Institute and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, giving it an excellent reputation for the quality of its research activities.

Entry Requirements

Minimum requirements listed here are the likely grades required and do not guarantee entry. The university assesses each application individually and applicants may require a higher grade to be offered a place.

University of Auckland

Completed one of the following with a GPA of 4.0:

  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) (Taught or Research 120 points)
  • Bachelors degree in a field related to your chosen specialisation, such as architecture, physics or geology (Taught 180 points)

Another tertiary institution

For Taught or Research 120 points - completed a four-year bachelors degree in engineering at a recognised university (or similar institution) that includes:

  • Broad coverage in your first year of the foundational science topics that underpin engineering disciplines: mathematical modelling, chemical and materials science, electrical engineering theory, mechanics, programming, and engineering design
  • One year of postgraduate-level study
  • A research project or dissertation comprising at least one-quarter of the final year

For Taught 180 points - Completed an undergraduate degree in a field similar to your intended specialisation at a recognised university (or similar institution) with a GPE of 4.0

Programme-specific entry requirements for postgraduate applicants with international qualifications:

  • GPE: 4

Important requirements for international students

  • All international applicants should ensure that they meet all the programme’s entry requirements. You should only proceed with your application if your GPA matches or exceeds the requirements listed for your country. Please do not apply if your GPA is below the minimum entry requirements, but consider the alternative study options that may be offered as a pathway into your preferred programme.
  • You are strongly advised to consider visa application times. Please be aware of the student visa processing times in your home country and submit the documentation needed well ahead of the Faculty of Engineering's programme application deadlines. For processing times, contact the New Zealand High Commission/Embassy or your education agent.
  • If you’re applying for your second masters degree, you need to be aware that additional assessment requirements will take extra time. The Faculty of Engineering is required to assess your previous masters degree courses to ensure that they do not overlap with the courses in the University of Auckland programme that you have expressed interest in. You must therefore allow more time for your application to be processed, and be aware that further documentation may be required. Submit your application well in advance of the deadline if this is your situation, as you may also need to take visa application times into account.
