The future challenges and complexity our globe will encounter, such as population growth and a global economy, increases the importance of our students develop a skill base that can future-proof their careers. Our programmes are problem-based, industry-connected and research-led.
Our researchers work collaboratively, blending disciplines to solve problems that have global impact. We leverage solutions from many areas of specialisation. From micro-electronics to detect animal pain to using artificial intelligence in smart homes for our aging population. We are future-focused, committed to helping society, communities and industry.
The School hosts research seminars, conferences and workshops and a number of events for Year 12 and 13 students and their teachers to experience engineering, food technology and information sciences at Massey.
I really enjoyed studying at Massey. My professors always had their doors open when I needed help with problems. For me, it was important to have that continuous feedback loop to help strengthen my skills as an engineer.Krystian Toms - Software Engineer – NZ Government
Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics)
My education at Massey University has provided me with knowledge that I use every day. Most nights, me and a number of other colleagues can be found working overtime, not because we have deadlines, but because work does not feel like work!Victor Bell - Medifab
Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics and Computer Engineering)
I immediately recommend Massey University to anyone considering studying construction. It’s been an incredible journey and I can’t imagine any other university delivering programmes through distance study better than Massey.David Finnie - Construction lecturer, Otago Polytechnic
Master of Construction
The possibilities in this industry are endless and every day is different, the hardest part is choosing where to go next.Gail Rolston - Assistant Cost Manager - Beca
Bachelor of Construction
My lecturers maintained an open door policy and acted as mentors through each project, motivating me to engineer innovatively. With their help, I won the Engineers Without Borders Award in New Zealand, GT Murray award for best presentation for my final year project and went on to publish three academic papers.Akshaya Kumar - Electronics Research and Development Engineer, Trutest
Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Mechatronics)
The opportunity to work with new technologies such as laser cutters and 3d printers, as well as working on multi-disciplinary team projects, meant I was able to build a very strong portfolio and also develop new technical skills.Jonathan Sng - Product Development Engineer, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare
Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
Massey University is a very practical university that encourages their students to not only design creative solutions, but to also build them.Sally Henseman - Product Development Engineer, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare
Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Product Development)
I found this programme challenging, but fun at the same time. We had an awesome lecturer which made the experience unforgettable…” For those of you with an interest in lighting and lighting design, this is definitely the choice for you!Simon Hadlow - Lighting Specification Sales and Design - Rexel Lighting
Graduate Certificate in Science and Technology (Lighting)
Massey equipped me with skills and knowledge that I can use every day in my job and this helped me to develop fast in my role.Arron Cox - Solid Waste Engineer, Horowhenua District Council

Massey staff have expertise in drafting building contracts so that the contract is more succinct and easily interpreted.
Dispute over a construction contract can incur large amounts of money and time. This delays works, increases costs and strains relationships.
Contracts can be populated with risk assignment clauses as required for each project.
We have expertise in testing for yield and tensile strength of a range of materials, using destructive and non-destructive methods. Our equipment include a tensilometer and scanning electron microscopes.
We have equipment in our photometric laboratory to test lighting performance, energy consumption of new lighting technologies and research and development of new luminaires. The photometric laboratory is on Massey's Auckland campus.
There are two campus-based student associations for technology and engineering students at Massey University called Techensoc. They are run by the students for the students.
A professor of postharvest technology, Professor Heyes' research background is in cell physiology, with more recent research focusing on connecting science to growth of the horticulture sector based on novel, high-value niche products.
The School of Engineering and Advanced Technology is one of seven interconnected schools within the College of Sciences.
