Victoria launches Computer Engineering Master

Posted on 22-Oct-2009 13:00 | Filed under: News

Victoria University will offer a Master of Engineering next year, beginning in February.

The programme will enable students to undertake a research project in electronics, computer systems networking, software engineering or a combination of these. It will cater for students with an appropriate Honours degree.

John Hine, Head of Victoria�s School of Engineering and Computer Science and Faculty of Engineering, said that the Master�s was a great option for new researchers.

�The Engineering programme at Victoria is unique in that it integrates electronics and software development.

�Victoria has the leading software engineering group in the country and a superb programme in mechatronics, essentially working with robots. We�ve got the largest fleet of mobile robots in New Zealand.

�Our researchers are also part of the international Honeynet project and are doing fascinating things to improve Internet security.

�The Master�s is an opportunity to study a particular topic in greater depth. It will be of interest to both engineering and science graduates as well as students from related areas like industrial design.

�Companies involved in research and development could also work with students from the School on collaborative Master�s projects.�

Potential Master�s students should visit the Engineering website to find a supervisor they may wish to do research with.
