O que eu aprenderei?

Civil infrastructure has the ability to change the landscape of our planet, from tunnels to skyscrapers. The Master of Civil Engineering (MCivilEng) offers professional practice and knowledge in infrastructure design and analysis, and advanced skills in project and stakeholder management. The flexible programme gives you the opportunity to specialise in a specific area, or develop a broad background in civil engineering.

Students will also gain understanding of complex issues that face our society, including sustainable engineering, risk mitigation for natural disasters, and bicultural perspectives of engineering in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Renewable Energy is transforming the world from a reliance on fossil fuels to sustainable energy systems. Researchers at UC are involved in renewable energy projects in Pacific Island nations and in South East Asia as well as New Zealand-based work like transitioning the Burnham Army Camp to more sustainable energy sources.

Renewable Energy is a multidisciplinary subject with relevant courses taught by all departments within the College of Engineering but the programme is based in the Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering.

Students will learn about the variety of renewable energy resources and conversion technologies, system modelling techniques, challenges to sustainability and practical solutions to common issues. Our postgraduate qualifications are excellent pathways to careers in the growing renewable and sustainable energy sector.

Further study

Graduates of the MCivilEng will be able to continue on to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in a number of related engineering subjects, for example in Civil Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, and Transportation Engineering.

Career Opportunities

Because of the flexible structure of the Master of Civil Engineering, students can tailor their degree towards a research or professional career in industry. Graduates will have general or specialist knowledge in civil engineering, which can be applied to structural, geotechnical, transport, construction, water, and/or fire engineering divisions.

Engaging biculturalism is also a strong component of the MCivilEng, which will give graduates a cultural understanding of Aotearoa New Zealand and skills in engaging mana whenua and iwi in building projects, making them ideal for future project management work in the industry.
