Dreaming of a career in civil engineering? Gain advanced knowledge of a specialist area within engineering: environmental, geotechnical, water, roading and transportation or structural engineering.
Develop the skills for a career as a civil engineering technologist. Specialise in geotechnical, water, roading and transportation, or structural engineering. Learn to make informed decisions about civil engineering projects, and apply technology to solve practical engineering problems. Explore computer-modelling techniques, civil engineering project management, engineering materials and structures, and construction practices.
- A nationally-led engineering qualification developed by six of New Zealand's largest institutes of technology and polytechnics (ITPs).
- Approved under a new New Zealand-wide framework for three-year engineering technology degrees.
- Accredited by the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ). On completion of this programme, combined with a period of work experience, you'll be eligible to apply for membership of IPENZ as a Technical Member (TIPENZ).
- Four different pathways: structural engineering, water engineering, geotechnical engineering or roading and transportation engineering.
- Strong links with the engineering industry.
- Small classes: the average class size is just 35-60 students.
- Cross-credits from the New Zealand Diploma in Engineering (Civil) available.
Focus on one of four specialist areas:
- Structural engineering - design, construction and supervision of buildings and other structures.
- Water engineering - including water supply, wastewater or stormwater disposal, river catchment systems, hydrology and erosion management, and urban drainage systems.
- Geotechnical engineering - foundation design, consolidation of fine-grained soils, improvement of slope stability, earth-retaining structures, geotechnical investigation and reports, and dewatering of construction sites.
- Roading and transportation engineering - design, construction and maintenance of roads; rail, sea and airport developments; and traffic engineering and urban transportation studies.
