Overview

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Mechanical Engineering

Study the Mechanical Engineering major in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). Develop a broad base of engineering skills and prepare yourself for a wide range of engineering careers.

Mechanical engineers work with advanced technology across many fields – from transportation to energy systems, home appliances to robotics, manufacturing machinery and processes to medical technologies. 

In a world where global warming and environmental degradation are critical issues, mechanical engineers play a key role in developing new sustainable technologies. 

This mechanical engineering degree focuses on analytical and design skills, and you have the opportunity to apply these skills in an industry project.

What you study

Most courses last one semester and are worth 15 points. If you're a full-time student, you normally complete 120 points each year (480 points for the entire degree).

In addition to successfully completing all courses, you also need to complete a minimum of 800 hours of planned supervised work placement before graduation. The aim of the work experience is to expose you to engineering practices and management systems in the work environment.

Workplace experience

Your individual industry project in Year 4 is your opportunity to gain real-life industrial experience in an engineering environment, under the guidance of an experienced supervisor.

You work on a project for organisations like Mighty River Power, Genesis Energy, Contact Energy, Fisher & Paykel Applicances, Spark and Auckland Airport.
