Our mission statement: Globally connected, we will grow through our inspirational teaching and innovative research, and become one of the top ten engineering colleges in the Southern Hemisphere by 2023.

The College of Engineering is a Founding Partner of the Diversity Agenda.

The University of Canterbury is in the top 1 per cent of universities in the world. Our Civil and Natural Resources Engineering Department is ranked 8th in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities and our Chemical and Process Engineering, and Electrical and Electronic Engineering departments are ranked in the top 250 (QS World University Rankings). An Engineering degree from UC is internationally recognised, allowing graduates to work all over the world. Our broad range of postgraduate specialist qualifications are designed to meet industry demand and graduates are sought after locally and internationally.

Some schools within the College of Engineering are interdisciplinary. With maths a crucial element of most degrees, the college hosts the School of Mathematics and Statistics. We are also home to the School of Forestry and students may study for a BE (Hons) specialising in Forest Engineering, or a Bachelor of Forestry Science depending on their interests.
