Information for schools
The College of Engineering is developing resources to help schools with teaching the core subjects involved in Engineering, along with Computer Science and Mathematics.
What to take at school
To study engineering at UC you need to have a good foundation in Maths and Physics. For some engineering disciplines* Chemistry is also a must. You should aim to have at least 14 credits in each subject at NCEA Level 3. Professional Engineers also need to have good oral and written communication skills.
