Industry needs talent led innovation engineers who have a well-developed ability to integrate their technical engineering skills with their enterprise skills to commercialise technical products/processes.
This degree will teach you how to draw on specialised technical engineering knowledge and give you experience in management, finance, sales, marketing, manufacturing and project management. This will see you well placed to provide leadership to take companies to the next competitive level.
Together with a sound technical base (either from a chemical, electronic or mechatronic basis) you will learn how to draw on your specialised engineering knowledge in the methods of engineering analysis and design and have:
The BE (Hons) programme has been accredited by Engineering NZ as a professional engineering degree under the Washington Accord. This is an international agreement between bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes.
Signatories are from Australia, Canada, China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, the United States, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, and Peru. This means you can practice as an engineer in these countries using your Massey University BE (Hons) qualification.
A 2017 Ministry of Education publication, The post-study earnings and destinations of young domestic graduates showed that those who complete a qualification in a science, agriculture, technology, computer science, engineering or mathematics field of study have high relative earnings after they complete their study compared to the national median. Earnings can be substantially more than other graduates.
If you do not have the required subjects Massey University offers various engineering preparatory pathways which will bring you up to the necessary standard. Talk to us to find out more.
“Engineering is a blend of all my strengths and passions – it involves maths, physics, research and problem-solving, but also creativity, innovation and the chance to improve the lives of many…”
Throughout my time at Massey, each day was filled with challenges and growth. I learnt so much, not just academically, but also about myself too. In particular how to think critically and innovatively, to work in a team and communicate effectively, as well as how to manage pressure and overcome obstacles.
I chose to study engineering at Massey as it had such a good reputation and I wasn’t disappointed. This course sets you up for any career you desire and makes sure you will be job ready.
In my current role as a GovTech Talent Graduate at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, I am helping with the digital transformation of the public sector. I get to rotate among different agencies and roles to find what path I want to pursue. I have already looked into project management, user experience design and chatbot development to name a few and I find it incredibly rewarding doing work that will benefit all New Zealanders as I continue to learn and grow.
“Engineering graduates with a mix of engineering, innovation and business skills will be critical to the success of the manufacturing firms employing them. Manufacturers tell us they like to employ people with a mix of practical as well as theoretical knowledge.
The most successful manufacturers are offering services to their customers so ‘soft skills’ matter too. This major looks like it ticks a lot of those boxes”.
