Broaden your horizons with a postgraduate qualification in engineering, computer and mathematical sciences

The Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences offers a range of Postgraduate Coursework programs that are informed by cutting edge research and underpinned by quality teaching.

Based on the University's North Terrace campus, students will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and learn from expert staff who are leaders in their field. Professionals wishing to strengthen their knowledge in a specialised area can also benefit from our industry knowledge and links.

Programs are delivered in traditional semester blocks and most programs can be undertaken on a full or part-time basis to accommodate your needs.

Masters, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate study can be undertaken in a range of discipline areas:

Computer Science
Mathematical Sciences

Postgraduate research degrees are specialised and research-intensive and based more around one-on-one interactions with a supervisor. Our Higher Degrees by Research can help you make an impact in your chosen area of study.

Further information about postgraduate research is available on the University's Postgraduate Research Degrees website and follow the links for specific entry requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy or Master of Philosophy.
