The Master of Applied Science (MASc) programme provides advanced exposure to the breadth and depth of electrical and computer systems and technologies, as well as pertinent engineering practice.  The programme facilitates the development of subject-specific skills and knowledge, general research skills and expertise in business management.  This mix enables graduates to assume technical and commercial leadership roles.
Graduates of the programme will have demonstrated the ability to:
  • use a combination of general and specialist engineering knowledge and understanding to optimise the application of existing and emerging technology;
  • apply appropriate theoretical and practical methods to the analysis and solution of engineering problems;
  • provide technical and commercial leadership; and
  • demonstrate a personal commitment to professional standards, recognising obligations to society, the profession and the environment.
The MASc degree is offered with majors in four subject areas:
Communication Systems Students are immersed in the analysis and evaluation of a broad range of communication systems with particular emphasis on design and implementation strategies optimized for locally and regionally relevant applications. Treatment includes hardware, software, design and development methodologies as well as applications within communications.
Control Systems Students are trained in the design and analysis of state of the art control and process systems both in theory and practice.  The focus is on higher order complex systems, non-linear systems and adaptive control strategies.
Energy Systems Students are exposed to advanced methods, analysis techniques and technologies that are used in the planning, design, implementation, operation, protection and analysis of electrical power systems.
Integrated  Systems Students acquire knowledge and skills in advanced methods and technologies used in the planning, design, implementation and operation of electronic and computer systems and other modern integrated systems.


The MASc programme is offered full-time and part-time through on-campus, face-to-face delivery. Full-time students are normally expected to fulfil the degree requirements in three semesters. Part-time students are normally expected to fulfil the degree requirements in six semesters.
