Field of Study

Materials and Manufacturing Engineering

Master of Engineering Science

The Master of Engineering Science (Materials and Manufacturing Engineering) combines professional engineering and leadership courses with advanced technical courses in composites, materials, manufacturing and mechanics.

You will develop a comprehensive understanding of new and sustainable materials and how they can be used in applications as diverse as aerospace, medical devices and novel functional applications. All students complete a research project or industry placement as part of this program.


Our graduates have the practical and advanced theoretical knowledge needed to step into roles that lead machinery development across the globe.

Mechanical engineers find employment in dynamic environments where machines are designed, developed, tested and manufactured.

Mechanical and materials engineers are employed by companies such as AlumniTech, TechExpo and Integra LifeSciences Corp.
