Qualifications

Overview

The greatest challenges facing Aotearoa New Zealand and the world are dominated by environmental factors: climate change, natural hazards, river and water quality, food production, population health, etc. We need to find a way to effectively integrate the built environment with the natural environment, and a minor in Water and Environmental Systems Engineering focuses on solving this. This minor is one of a kind in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The highest quality academic staff have been recruited globally to drive research and teaching activities relevant to these critical challenges. Water and Environmental Systems engineers integrate our understanding of engineering, communities, and the environment in a way that is ethical and effective. Therefore, it's important for our engineers to include mana whenua in the process of developing solutions.

Students study towards the Water and Environmental Systems Engineering minor alongside Civil Engineering in the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours.
