Overview

This course is designed to enable engineers and other technical specialists to take a leadership role in the field of environmental engineering.

The course combines a set of key subjects that contain information on the nature of environmental problems together with engineering techniques for their solution. This is supplemented by management and policy subjects to empower the engineer, or technical specialist, to lead multidisciplinary teams working in the field of environmental engineering.

Career options

Career options include positions in government agencies or private corporations, or as consultants.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed a UTS recognised bachelor's degree, or an equivalent or higher qualification, or submitted other evidence of general and professional qualifications that demonstrates potential to pursue graduate studies.

Previous qualifications must be in engineering or another technological/applied science field. Candidates without a degree, but with suitable experience, may enrol in the Graduate Certificate in Environmental Engineering Management (C11051) and later transfer to the Master of Environmental Engineering Management with full credit for completed subjects.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 58-66

Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Credit recognition

Students who have previously undertaken postgraduate study at a university or other recognised tertiary education institutions may be eligible for some academic credit recognition if the subjects previously completed are deemed by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology to be equivalent to subjects, and relevant to the course applied.

The prior study must have been completed before commencement of this course, but no earlier than 10 years before commencement. Students must be able to demonstrate that their knowledge is current.

Course duration and attendance

Most students taking two subjects a semester require two years to complete this degree. The course is also available to fee-paying overseas students on a full-time basis, taking one year to complete.

Subjects are offered as three-hour weekly sessions or in block mode. Some subjects may be available in distance mode. Each subject usually requires three hours of class attendance per week. Subjects offered by distance mode require similar hours but at the convenience of the student.

Students who want to undertake the course in distance mode may have to follow a restricted course structure as not all subjects are offered in distance mode.

Course structure

Students are required to complete 48 credit points of study, comprising 36 credit points from the core subjects and 12 credit points from 49001, 49002, 49003 or 49108.
