AUT encourages early application. There are limited places available. Late applications will be accepted if the programme is not full. Applicants will normally be selected on the basis of their level of academic achievement and may be required to attend a selection interview.
You will be guaranteed a place in this programme if you achieve an academic score of 250 along with NCEA 14 level 3 credits in each of Calculus and Physics or CIE A levels in Mathematics and Physics.
The first year is common to all majors. As well as completing engineering papers, you also develop communication and teamwork skills, which are essential for the team environment engineers work in.
Your second year covers background and tools necessary to understand and apply mathematical and engineering sciences across a range of engineering disciplines within each major. This year mechatronics and software engineering students select a minor with the approval of the programme leader. Students study two papers from the selected minor.
As well as undertaking advanced study in your major, you complete a project where you work on a piece of engineering design and analysis under the supervision of academic supervisors. This year, maritime major students move to study in Australia. Mechatronics and software engineering major students complete the course of study of their chosen minor with a further two papers.
You complete an individual industrial project, working on a real-world piece of engineering design and analysis.
* Mechanical, Maritime as well as Electrical and Electronic Engineering are professionally accredited and internationally benchmarked. Our more recent degrees in Construction, Architectural, Software and Mechatronics Engineering have been CUAP approved and been developed in consultation with IPENZ and are expected to be accredited following a prescribed accreditation schedule.
** Maritime engineering students can only start in Semester 1 because of the transfer to AMC in Year 3 and 4.
