TRANSFER TO THE MEng PROGRAMME

A Post-Graduate Diploma student may transfer to the MEng programme as long as the candidate satisfies the entry requirements of the MEng and provideded the courses are passed at levels acceptable for the award of MEng degree.

Master Of Engineering

Introduction

The department shall offer the following Master of Engineering degrees:

  1. Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering
  2. (Manufacturing Systems and Operations Management)
  3. Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering
  4. (Manufacturing Engineering and Operations Management)


ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

The normal entry requirement for the Master of Engineering shall be a bachelor degree at the level of First Class Honours or Second Class Honours Division in Industrial, Manufacturing, Production, or Mechanical Engineering.
In some cases, applicants with qualifications which are deemed to be equivalent to the honours award may be accepted under the Special Entry requirement.
Additionally, all candidates for the Master of Engineering must have at least two years industrial experience.

PROGRAMME REQUIREMENTS

An approved programme of study consists of core and elective courses with credit points totalling not fewer than 30 credits (10 courses) and 6 credits for the thesis. Of the 30 credits total, 18 credits are allocated to the First Semester.
Not less than 18 credits should be taken from the Manufacturing component. It is therefore important that a candidate admitted to the programme liaises with the Department to ensure that the Department and Faculty regulations are met.
The project leading to a thesis should be carried out under the supervision of an academic staff. On completion of the project, a candidate must after consultation with, and with the consent of the supervisor, present 3 copies of the thesis to the Department.
Successful completion of the programme requires that the candidate passes all courses totalling 30 credits and defending his/her thesis before the Supervisory Committee. The results shall be considered by the Faculty Board of Examiners and shall be subject to approval by the Academic Board of Examiners and Senate.

STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMME
Full-time Programme

The MEng programme will require two semesters

  1. BEng (Hons) Industrial Engineering
  2. General Information


The department offers the post graduate degrees of Master of Engineering and diploma in Industrial Engineering.It also offers M Phil and Ph D degrees by research. Normal entry qualifications are an appropriate Honours degree class 2.1 or better, and thus far no exceptions have been made. Stipulated minimum periods of study are 2 years full-time or 3 years part-time for M Phil, 3 years full-time or 5 years part-time for Ph D. Only in very exceptional circumstances will a candidate be admitted directly to Ph D, but a facility exists to allow a transfer from M Phil to Ph D where appropriate.

A candidate admitted to full-time study has no guarantee of financial support, and none is available at present. However in future the department will do its best to seek suitable scholarships, and will employ candidates as teaching assistants wherever possible. Any such support will be offered on a competitive basis.
