The Faculty of Engineering has in excess of 4000 students, 3300 at undergraduate level, 500 in taught postgraduate programmes and 560 research postgraduate students.
A range of specialisations are available in the Bachelor of Engineering degree. New specialisations, such as software engineering and biomedical engineering, have been introduced in recent years, in response to the changing needs of society.
Research is also a key activity at the Faculty, with large scale research activities and collaborations with other institutions and members of the industry. Much of the work undertaken is of a world-class level, while in many areas, the research programmes, and academics and students involved, are clearly leading the world in their discoveries and developments.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering drives industry partnerships that enable cutting edge learning. We build on our experience and the innovation of our researchers to provide the very best standards in research and learning. Courses and programmes are designed to ensure that our students will be successful when they enter their chosen industries. The focus of teaching is on specific technologies at undergraduate level, shifting to a strong research focus at postgraduate level. Undergraduates benefit from exposure to projects similar to entry-level engineers in industry while many past students, in demand by industry recruiters, have found senior positions with New Zealand’s foremost companies.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland will equip positive, proactive people with the skills they require to embark on successful professional careers.
