Overview

Note: The MET is currently not open to new enrolments and is subject to Te Pōkai Tara | Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due July 2021. Please see the Transportation Engineering endorsement in the Master of Engineering.

The Master of Engineering in Transportation was established in cooperation with Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau | University of Auckland and with support from the transport industry in Aotearoa New Zealand.

It covers three main areas, with options for specialising in one or all:

  • transportation planning
  • traffic engineering
  • pavement engineering.

Many courses are taught in block mode and by distance, allowing practising engineers to complete their degree while remaining in full-time employment.

UC is ranked 9th in the world for Civil Engineering (Academic Ranking of World Universities, 2021), and in the top 100 universities in the world for Civil and Structural Engineering (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2021).
