This program is not accredited by EA. 5341 Graduate Diploma 7320 Graduate Certificate 48UOC - 8 Courses (1 year full time) 24UOC - 4 Courses (6 months full time)

8338 Masters of Engineering Science Program At least 24 UoC Disciplinary Knowledge Courses (Professional Development) These are CVEN4XXX courses. This is NOT compulsory for you unless stated in your offer letter for your particular specialisation (e.g. Geospatial students). You can instead choose more postgraduate courses. o Students without background in Geomechanics must choose CVEN9525 Fundamentals of Geomechanics (6 UOC) This will be outlined in your offer letter o Students without background in Water Eng. must choose CVEN9625 Fundamentals of Water Engineering (6 UOC) This will be outlined in your offer letter With 48 UoC Exemption you do not complete the above, but must instead do: At least 24 UoC Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge Courses (4 courses) These courses are the courses related to your specialisation.

(Max. 6 UoC can be outside School)

What does your Credit/Advanced Standing mean? If you are given 48UOC of exemptions, they will look like either of these: GSOE8124 24UOC Disciplinary Knowledge GSOE8524 24UOC Transfer credit This credit means you must do a Thesis Project because you did not complete one in your Undergraduate studies. GSOE8212 12UOC electives GSOE8312 - 12 UOC Enquiry based GSOE8124 24UOC Disciplinary Knowledge This credit means you do not need to do a Thesis Project because you did complete one in your Undergraduate studies. If you have been given 42UOC or less you are usually expected to also complete a prescribed course which is outlined in your offer letter. It is expected you complete these prescribed courses as soon as possible. Masters Thesis Thesis is completed over two consecutive semesters.

ALL students in 8621 must complete a thesis CVEN9931 & CVEN9932 and start thesis in the first semester of their second year. If you are in program 8338 and have not received the following exemption GSOE8312- Enquiry Based Credit you must complete CVEN9931 & CVEN9932 You are still required to complete GSOE9010/GSOE9011 or GSOE9220. o If you have completed a Thesis in your undergraduate studies or in a previous Masters program, you may be exempt from Masters Thesis A & B.

Masters Thesis

Finding a Supervisor internally Please note that our academic staffs are not obliged to supervise you. You must present yourselves to them and only if the academic sees there is genuine interest in their topics will they consider supervising you. Please ensure you are always polite in your email. Do not demand supervision, it should be a request. Find a suitable topic in an area of your interest on the Student Intranet. Look up academic staff ensuring their background and area of expertise is appropriate for your research. Email the academic with the following information: Explanation of your interest in the area. Education and work background. Request a meet time to discuss potential research topics. (If you are overseas and cannot meet before the start of semester arrange a skype chat.)
