Engineers design the future. They provide innovative solutions to meet the needs of our modern world. From buildings and bridges, to apps and smart devices, to pharmaceuticals and renewable energy, engineering feats are everywhere.
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours is a four-year professional degree. The degree is accredited by Engineering New Zealand, allowing our graduates to work as professionally qualified engineers all over the world.
Computers are at the heart of most modern products, transforming them into devices capable of sensing, making intelligent decisions, and taking collaborative actions. The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Computer Engineering brings together elements of electronics and software, giving you the knowledge and expertise to create the next era of powerful smart electronic devices.
This will involve building technical knowledge on sensors, controllers, processors and machine intelligence, and creativity, with a strong emphasis on application-specific design to solve real-world problems.
Portable electronics, autonomous robotics, biomedical devices, household electronics, telecommunications, manufacturing and infrastructure, and high-performance supercomputers are all associated with Computer Engineering.
How do I plan my degree?
The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours requires a minimum of 480 points:
The first year of the degree comprises nine courses (120 points), made up of six compulsory courses and three first-year courses, which vary depending on which Engineering discipline you want to specialise in. Find guidance online to structuring your first year to keep your options open if you are undecided on which discipline you wish to pursue.
The first year is followed by three years of study in one of the Engineering disciplines. Some disciplines also offer the opportunity to include a minor subject. Entry to the second year of the degree is limited and based on your performance in the first year.
All students must also complete 800 hours (approximately 100 days) of practical work placement.
With approximately 50% of the ICT industry in Aotearoa located in the Waitaha Canterbury region, Otautahi Christchurch is the ideal location for such a programme, offering abundant opportunities for work experience and excellent employment opportunities for graduates.
There are plenty of exciting job opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally for computer engineers, as they are in high demand. Many find employment with companies that create devices with embedded systems such as Tait Electronics, Allied Telesis, Fisher & Paykel, Dynamic Controls, and Trimble.
