Master of Engineering (MEng) specialising in Transport Studies

The Master of Engineering specialising in Transport Studies degree (EM017CIV06) is available to candidates with undergraduate degrees in engineering. It requires the completion of three core courses totalling 60 credits, approved elective (engineering-focussed) courses totalling a minimum of 60 credits, and an approved 60-credit (engineering-focussed) minor dissertation (CIV5017Z). Progression to the minor dissertation is conditional on the candidate attaining a weighted mean mark of 55% in core coursework.

Elective courses

Students are able to motivate elective courses to suit their chosen area of specialisation. Students are therefore permitted to undertake suitable (engineering-focussed) elective courses in other programmes, or at other universities, to supplement the elective courses offered by the CfTS. This enables study in transport engineering fields not covered at UCT.
