Our department

Our design and project-intensive curriculum aims to provide you with the expertise to solve real-life and complex engineering problems, and prepare you for the challenges of designing and manufacturing advanced products and services for the 21st century.

We offer two specialisations:

  • Mechanical Engineering, which concerns the interaction between forces, motion and energy, as well as the design and manufacture of machines, mechanisms and engines.
  • Mechatronics Engineering, which concerns the integration of mechanical and electrical systems, computers and machines.

We also offer a diverse and active community for research at and above postgraduate level, and we are proud of our strong international reputation for the quality of our research outputs. We have collaborative links with research groups within New Zealand and across the world.
