Yearbook 2014


Engineering and Technology at Massey University will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2015. 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 (B.Engineering, B.FoodTechnology, B.Science, B.InformationScience and B.Construction), and postgraduate (Diploma, Masters and PhD) level.

While providing a strong grounding in the principles of engineering and technology we have recognized the need for graduates who are well rounded in their problem solving skills, communication, ability to work in teams and appreciation of the wider commercial, economic and social environment. Our courses are designed to develop these skills with a strong emphasis on activity-based learning.

Right from day one students are immersed in projects that challenge their problem solving ability in a range of different contexts - from designing solutions to improve living conditions for the people of the Mekong Delta to developing products for a new start-up company.

The culmination of the undergraduate degree programme is the final year capstone 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 2014.

Students can choose to major in one of 5 key areas – Product Development, Mechatronics, Electronics and Computers, Chemical and Bioprocessing, and Food Technology. Each major provides the opportunity for further specialisation.

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