Summary

Postgraduate certificates and diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree.

Why study a PGCert?

Postgraduate certificates are available to graduates who wish to build on an earlier degree, and who have appropriate practical, professional or scholarly experience. Some are available only on a part time basis. Waikato University offers specialist postgraduate certificates as well as postgraduate certificates.

Why study Engineering?

New Zealand needs more professional engineers working in the economy. Currently, fewer than 1,000 professional engineers graduate each year. Countries with similar populations to New Zealand have more than double that number of engineering graduates. As a trained engineer, you will be in-demand and essential for New Zealand’s growth in technology-related enterprises. Our close links with the New Zealand industry ensures you will be work-ready and able to apply your engineering skills and scientific knowledge to solve real-world, industrial and societal problems. Please note

Engineering as a subject is only available for the qualifications listed on this page. For a list of programmes available for the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours, please go to BE(Hons).

Entry criteria

A bachelors degree from the University of Waikato, or a qualification considered by the Academic Board to be equivalent, and previously completed study at an advanced level in the subject to be taken.
