Engineering Legitimacy

VIC BACHELOR NO LONGER FOREVER ALONE

Victoria’s Bachelor of Engineering (BE) has been granted full accreditation by the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ).

Accreditation means that graduates will now have international recognition, and greater opportunity to work overseas through agreements the IPENZ has in other countries.

Professor John Hine, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, was “delighted” with the accreditation.

“Victoria’s BE programme intentionally focuses on modern forms of engineering, specialisations that can respond to today’s and tomorrow’s needs,” he said.

A panel of engineers spent several days looking at all aspects of the programme.

The four-year degree was launched in 2007.

AUT, Manukau Institute of Technology, Massey University, Auckland University, Unitec Institute of Technology and Canterbury University all have degree programmes accredited by the IPENZ.
