We offer a variety of specialisations that mirror the diversity of our five departments, the ever-evolving engineering profession, and our increasingly interdisciplinary research.
Our ten Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) specialisations are accredited by Engineering New Zealand, a signatory of the Washington Accord. This makes it a recognisable engineering qualification in many countries.
We additionally offer more postgraduate specialisations to accomodate to the detailed nature of advanced study. You can also undertake a study programme that’s either taught or research-focused.
