Program Description

Master of Engineering Science

University of Newcastle

The Master of Engineering Science Degree is a postgraduate coursework program suitable for science and engineering graduates. Students have the opportunity to create the kind of Masters program that best meets their requirements through the choice of the specialisations. These specialisations fall into three categories, covering Technical Courses, Management and an Engineering Project (which may be conducted in the work place or on campus). Technical courses are offered in the areas of Mineral Processing and Energy. Students who have completed a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Science or a Graduate Certificate in Innovation and Commercialisation (and meet the MEngSc entry requirements) are required to complete another specialisation to be awarded the Master of Engineering Science. Please note: Students are unable to combine Mineral Processing with the Energy specialisation.

Career Opportunities


This Masters program recognises the different career pathways that science and engineering professionals working in industry choose to take, usually either managerial or technical. The technical specialisations are especially relevant to the energy sector (e.g. Clean Coal Technology), and also to those who wish to work in the coal or mineral processing industries. Others interested in research and development, innovation and commercialisation sectors will also benefit.

Study a language


All students can now enrol in a Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree.
