Course details

Summary

Study the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) to prepare for a rewarding career in engineering. This degree is accredited by Engineering New Zealand. It meets the Washington Accord and prepares you for Engineering New Zealand membership.

As an engineer you address the key issues we face today, like access to clean water, sustainable energy systems, waste management, recycling and environmental pressures. In our engineering degree you learn to formulate models and analyse, predict and monitor engineering systems – essential skills in professional engineering.

Through a joint venture with Australian Maritime College (AMC), New Zealand students can now study maritime engineering in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree.

If you study maritime engineering, you start with two years of study at AUT and then transfer to the AMC in Tasmania for your final two years. You then specialise in marine and offshore engineering, naval architecture or ocean engineering. There is no other programme of this kind in New Zealand.

Maritime majors are only open to New Zealand citizens. Students are subject to Australian visa and fee requirements depending on their citizenship and residency status. New Zealand citizens are entitled to study in Australia on the same basis as Australian permanent residents. Most New Zealand citizens are eligible for student loans through StudyLink but you should check your eligibility with StudyLink.

Key features:

  • The only maritime engineering degree offered by a New Zealand university
  • Career opportunities to travel and work at sea
  • Study in New Zealand and Australia
  • Accredited by Engineers Australia

  • Survey for government, class societies and insurance

Naval Architecture

  • Shipbuilding – cargo vessels, ferries, naval vessels, ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles), sailing, power and mega-yachts

Ocean Engineering

  • Design, installation and management of offshore oil and gas installations
  • Renewable energy installations
  • Coastal engineering
