About the course

Diploma in Global Humanitarian Engineering graduates will be able to demonstrate knowledge and skills in a range of areas additional to their specialist engineering disciplines and will have shown a capacity for taking on additional work and an interest in applying their skills and knowledge to humanitarian service. The programme will be expected, over a period of time, to create a track record of partnering with disadvantaged and developing communities that reflects direct benefit to those communities from students during the course of their learning. Graduates of this programme will thus be well placed to find employment in a diverse range of engineering companies, both nationally and internationally, and will be recognised by prospective employers as having “people” skills that are over and above those of other engineering graduates.

All candidates must either have been approved into a BE(Hons) programme or have successfully completed a BE(Hons) Engineering Programme in relevant subjects, or have successfully completed another approved engineering qualification such as the New Zealand Certificate of Engineering, the New Zealand Diploma of Engineering or a Bachelor of Engineering Technology, or equivalent.
