This research course develops through the conduct of a supervised research project the ability of a suitably qualified candidate to contribute to the knowledge and practice of engineering. At the completion of the assigned project the candidate submits a written thesis presenting the results of their work and discussing the significance for the pertinent field of engineering. The thesis is examined according to the University's Regulations for the Degree of Master (by research) (refer to General Information section).
Master Degrees (Research) require students to undertake an approved research program leading to a thesis for independent examination; they may include advanced level coursework studies.
The topic for the research project is assigned to the candidate after consultation with the Head of Department. Students who are admitted subject to successful completion of a qualifying program enrol in one or both of the Master Qualifying Program units and undertake a specified program of study. On successful completion, students will qualify to proceed with the formal master program. Failure to attain a satisfactory standard in the qualifying units will render a student ineligible for re-enrolment inthe master program.
