You can choose from the following specified programmes:

Chemical and Biological Engineering

The Chemical and Biological Engineering programme at the University of Waikato combines the traditional discipline of chemical engineering with new and emerging specialisations in engineering to produce graduates who are better equipped to solve the world’s sustainability challenges.

Civil Engineering

The world needs competent and trained Civil Engineering professionals to address the increasing challenges in urban and rural facilities and infrastructure.

Electronic Engineering

The work of electronic engineers is essential to our social, business and industrial lives.  New Zealand’s electronics manufacturing industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country.  Our companies are targeting niche markets, such as telecommunications, and exporting their products all over the world.

Environmental Engineering

Study Environmental Engineering at the University of Waikato for a career where you'll make a lasting impact on society by helping to protect and enhance our natural and man-made environments, while enjoying excellent job prospects.

Materials and Process Engineering

By studying Materials and Process Engineering at the University of Waikato, you will learn how to add value to raw materials used to manufacture a number of useful products, while minimising waste.  These products can be as varied as dietary formulae, foods, ceramics that can withstand high temperatures, new metal alloys, pharmaceuticals, laminated boards, functional proteins, and composites.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering uses mechanics and energy principles to design, research, develop and manufacture tools, engines, motors and other devices.  At the University of Waikato we align what you learn with what industry requires.

Software Engineering

When you study software engineering, you'll be learning about how to use a scientific and disciplined approach to designing and developing complex software systems. You'll also learn how to operate and maintain such systems.  From ATM machines to smart phones to cars - many aspects of modern society are driven by software which we expect to operate correctly and be reliable and flexible at all times.
