Yearbook 2011


Engineering and Technology was established at Massey University over 40 years ago. Graduates can now be found in New Zealand and around the world in careers including technical design, manufacturing and general management. Today, Massey University offers a wide range of courses at both undergraduate (BEng, BFoodTech, BSc and B.Construction), and postgraduate diploma (masters and PhD) level.

2012 marks the launch of our new and improved Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Food Technology programmes. We have responded to calls from professional bodies and industry for graduates who have a high level of technical competence and who are capable of working in, and leading, teams; who are great communicators; who know how to manage a project to successful completion; and who are creative in all that they do. Our response has been to place a greater emphasis on activity-based learning, where students will apply their knowledge to real problems right from day 1 and throughout the 4 years of the programme.

Students can choose to major in one of 6 key areas – Product Development, Mechatronics, Electronics and Computers, Information Science, Chemical and Bioprocessing, and Food Technology. Each major provides the opportunity for further specialization.

The culmination of the undergraduate degree programme is the final year project. Here the students apply their knowledge to the solution of real life commercial or industrial problems. This booklet presents summaries of the Engineering and Food Technology 4th year projects from 2011.

A Massey University Engineering or Technology degree provides a high level of technical knowledge AND the professional skills to truly make a difference - today and into the future.
