Become part of a community that plays a role in improving our future – blend theory and practice to contribute to an increasingly technologically advanced, sustainable world.
This four-year programme, comprising a blend of theoretical and practical work, ensures that you're career-ready upon graduation. You'll pursue one of the nine specialisations available at our country's leading Engineering faculty.
We are known also for our passionate, active community. With dedicated support services and student networks to help you with personal or academic issues, we'll provide you with all the resources necessary for success.
The BE(Hons) is split into four ‘Parts' that correspond to your year of study.
In Part I, you will be exposed to our nine available specialisations and study a broad base of engineering and professional fundamentals.
You will also select a General Education paper – this is a distinctive feature of our University's undergraduate programmes. General Education is designed to broaden your education. You will also have to complete an online academic integrity course.
Parts II, III and IV are customised according to your chosen specialisation. Along with your specialisation courses, you will study a common core of mathematical modelling, technical communication, and professional development. You will also pursue elective courses to explore the topics that interest you the most.
Practical work is an essential component of your degree. You will be required to complete a 40-hour workshop practice course in Part II, and 800 hours of practical work experience throughout your degree. Find out more about these compulsory practical components.
Where could this programme take you?
Your specialisation, personal interests and chosen electives can impact what you pursue. With quantitative, problem-solving, communication and technical skills, you'll easily adapt to the technologically-driven nature of many industries. All our specialisations are accredited by Engineering New Zealand, a signatory to the Washington Accord, making our BE(Hons) a recognised engineering qualification in many countries.
