Welcome from the Dean

Congratulations on your decision to join us in the Faculty of Engineering and welcome to the University.

While the new learning environment is exciting, it can be confusing in the beginning for new students. We offer a wide range of academic services, financial scholarships and social opportunities to support you. Below are some key points and dates to remember.

Academic requirements

  • Semester 2 Faculty Orientation will be held on Friday 15 July. More information about the programme can be found here. We strongly recommend that all new students attend Faculty Orientation.
  • You can find enrolment information here.
  • We encourage you to consult the 2016 Engineering Undergraduate Handbook. View it online or pick up a hard copy from the Engineering Student Centre.
  • All new students must complete the Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA), regardless of whether you are a native English speaker or not.  By completing the DELNA requirements you will be regarded as having passed ENGGEN 199, a compulsory, non-graded, zero-point course for Part I.  You do not need to enrol yourself in ENGGEN 199 like other Part I courses. We will do it for you after you complete DELNA. We recommend you book in to complete your DELNA screening before your workload increases - book in here.
  • The Academic Integrity Course (ACADINT A01) is another compulsory, zero-point requirement for Part I of your BE(Hons). It is an online course for all students new to the University of Auckland, covering the University's regulations around academic conduct. You will not be allowed to proceed to Part II until this requirement is met. Complete it online here.

If you have any questions about your upcoming university life feel free to contact our staff at the Engineering Student Centre located at Level 4, 20 Symonds Street, City Campus.
