Access cards

Students are allowed after-hours access to enter the Faculty of Engineering Building. Students can purchase this card from the Faculty of Engineering Student Centre. The cost of the card is $6 and needs to be updated every year.

Course readers

Most courses require students to have access to a specially produced course handbook or reader. Students may be charged a fee to cover the cost of copied course readers.

These handbooks or readers will only be available from the University Book Shop. They will not be available from the Engineering Student Centre.

Safety is a high priority for the faculty, and will be for yourself not only during your studies, but throughout your professional career to come. Consequently, the faculty provides all students with safety information which has been incorporated into the Faculty of Engineering Undergraduate Handbook.

Practical work requirements

All NZCE students entering the Faculty of Engineering are reminded that they are required to complete a report covering at least 400 hours of practical work to fulfill the practical work requirements for the BE(Hons) degree. Under usual circumstances, this report has already been produced on work completed during the NZCE training.

Other direct entry students are reminded that they must comply with Practical Work regulations. They should see the Practical Work Coordinator in their department to discuss these requirements.
