Master of Engineering in Transportation MET
The Master of Engineering in Transportation was established in cooperation with the University of Auckland and with financial and other support from the transport industry in New Zealand. It covers three main areas – transportation planning, traffic engineering and pavement engineering, with options for specialising in one or all.
Many courses are taught in ‘block mode’ (two three-day blocks at the start and middle of the course, with other requirements being completed via the web and an examination), allowing practising engineers to complete their degree within a four-year period while remaining in full-time employment.
A PhD in Transportation Engineering is also available.
The degree may be taken by:
- examination and project: six courses and a project report (ENTR 680)
- examination and thesis: one to four courses from ENTR 401, ENTR 601–620, and a thesis (ENTR 690)
- thesis only (ENTR 690).
Candidates must normally have completed one of the following:
- BE(Hons) with first or second class honours
- Postgraduate Certificate in Engineering or Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering, with a GPA or 5 or more
- BSc(Hons) in appropriate subjects.
Students wishing to enrol in postgraduate study must have completed both the academic and non-academic requirements of the prerequisite degree. This includes practical work days, work reports, a workshop training course and a first aid certificate.
- Examination and project: one year full-time or two to four years part-time.
- Examination and thesis: one to three years full-time or two to four years part-time.
- Thesis only: one to three years full-time or two to four years part-time.
