Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport)
Specialise in traffic and transport with your civil engineering degree
Learn how to adapt and apply technologies, modelling and analytic methods to solve complex transport problems. Study traffic engineering, land use and environment, professional practice and complete a civil engineering research project.
The University of South Australia, UniSA, is ranked in the top 10 universities nationally and amongst the very best young universities in the world. They offer over 200 world-class degrees that are informed by industry and delivered with a highly practical approach to teaching and learning. In fact, they are South Australia’s number one university for graduate careers. They are a valuable partner with Open Universities Australia.
Extend and consolidate knowledge in a specialised area of Civil Engineering
Plan and undertake a substantial project that synthesises and integrates advanced knowledge in a research context either in an academic or industry setting
Adapt and apply latest technologies, advanced modelling and analytic methods to solve complex problems in a specialised area of Civil Engineering
Develop skills and qualities that enhance their career development as a professional engineer
Consolidate knowledge of the ethical implications and challenges of Civil Engineering professional practice
Communicate complex ideas and evaluate outcomes appropriately for a range of audiences
Adapt and apply latest technologies, advanced modelling and analytic methods to solve complex Civil Engineering problems in a range of international contexts.
The Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport) prepares graduates to move into specialist transport engineering roles. This program will meet the needs of students expecting to achieve a high level of educational qualifications prior to entering the workforce, as well as the needs of those who are already in the workforce and are seeking formal continuing professional development.
A completed four-year Bachelors degree with Honours in civil engineering or a related discipline from a recognised higher education institution or equivalent;
A completed Graduate Certificate in a Civil Engineering from UniSA, or related discipline from a recognised higher education institution.
A related discipline may be other engineering degrees or related 4 year Science degrees with Honours. Applicants who do not hold an honours degree in Civil Engineering will be assessed on a case by case basis by the Program Director.
English Proficiency Requirements
Required IELTS Score of 6.5
No credit will be granted in this program. Where a student has completed one or more of the degrees from this schedule as part of another program they will be required to complete alternative degrees to obtain the Masters.
The Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport) will no longer be on offer to new students in 2017. Students will be provided with an individual study plan for the remaining duration of their degree. All students will have until the end of 2018 to complete the required subjects in the degree in order to be eligible for the award.
The Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport) aims to provide graduates and current practitioners with an advanced level of knowledge and skills in a range of areas relevant to the transport sector of Civil Engineering.
Recommended Study Pattern
Students may form their own study path, however, METS5076 Civil Engineering Research Project must be taken in the final semester of a student's degree. It is offered in both postgraduate session 1 and 2 each year. Hence, students who commence the program mid-year will take all 3 of the 4.5 subject subjects shown in session 2 as well as Case Studies in Transport which is offered in each session. In Session 1 these students will take Civil Engineering Research Project, Traffic Engineering and either Spatial Analysis and Modelling OR Research Data Analysis.
Case Studies in Transport must be taken in the session immediately prior to the Civil Engineering Research Project as it is used to develop the student's proposal for their project.
The Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport) requires the completion of 6 subjects of degreework and 1 double unit of research. Civil Engineering Research Project must be taken in the final semester of a student's degree.
The Master of Engineering (Civil and Transport) will no longer be on offer to new students in 2017. Students will be provided with an individual study plan for the remaining duration of their course. All students will have until the end of 2018 to complete the required units in the course in order to be eligible for the award.
