Engineering and Computer Science are complex and fast moving disciplines, and Victoria is committed to excellence in its teaching and research. Our undergraduate degrees provide an excellent platform for careers in engineering and computer science, but postgraduate study will enable you to explore the full breadth and depth of these dynamic disciplines. Professional engineers also benefit from studying the latest trends in their fields. Our postgraduate programmes support new graduates, experienced professionals and those who are looking for a change of career. Master of Computer Science The Master of Computer Science (MCompSc) is master’s degree centred on course work completed over two years (or a longer period on a part-time basis). It is a graduate qualification designed for professionals seeking to advance their knowledge of Computer Science and to obtain a formal qualification that recognises their achievement. The degree may also be attractive to new graduates who wish to advance their knowledge of Computer Science before seeking employment. The degree emphasises course work as opposed to a significant research thesis. How to Apply Applicants for Master thesis programmes are advised to discuss their proposed enrolment with a member of the Engineering and Computer Science staff, either in person or by mail/email. Applicants with qualifications not from VUW should bring/include a copy of their transcript and details of courses they have taken.
