Summary

Prepare yourself for a career in civil infrastructure development building your abilities within a choice of engineering strands including structural, water or waste water engineering.

Our Bachelor of Engineering Technology (BEngTech) (Civil Major) is a three year programme comprising of core and elective courses - you can specialise in structural, water and waste water, roading-transportation, geotechnical or environmental engineering strands. The BEngTech (Civil) is fully accredited by Engineering New Zealand (EngNZ) and is recognised internationally under the Sydney Accord.

In your first year of study you'll develop core engineering skills in computing, mathematics, management and the engineering sciences, plus some discipline-specific topics. This forms the foundation upon which you'll build your degree. Critical thinking, problem solving and innovation will be a key part of your success.

In your second and third years you'll continue to deepen your understanding in civil engineering and engage in projects to apply your knowledge. A capstone project is run with close ties to industry, with many projects being sponsored by key industry parties. This offers the chance to test your skills against industry standards in a real-world scenario, while building your professional portfolio and developing important industry contacts.
