About this program

The BE(Hons) programme has provisional accreditation by Engineering NZ as a professional engineering degree under the Washington Accord. Our practical learning environment, combined with having more work experience than other New Zealand engineering qualification will see you develop the skills that employers are looking for.

Play a key role in making the technology that is a key part of our lives

Studying toward the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Electronics and Computer Engineering) will help you play a key role in the design and manufacture of the technology that is a key part of our world.

What is it Like?

The Massey University Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics and Computer Engineering) will help you become an excellent electronic and computer engineer. You will be multi-disciplinary, have excellent practical skills and be able to design, develop and manage both software and hardware projects. You will be capable of working in a team environment to solve problems from the device level to networks, communication systems and embedded systems.

Electronic systems sense what is happening in the world around us, and computer systems process this data to extract information, or to control some activity. Virtually every aspect of our lives involves electronic and computer technology. Electronic systems sense what is happening in the world around us, and computer systems process this data to extract information, or to control some activity.

Tablet computers, smart phones and internet banking are commonplace today - the obvious examples of electronics and computers in modern day life. However, most electronics and computer systems are hidden: in appliances from toasters to washing machines to refrigerators; in cars; in traffic systems; in heating systems. These are just a few examples of how electronics and computers have integrated and become all pervasive in modern day life, ensuring the continued relevance of this area of engineering.

Hands-on practice as you learn

The distinctive feature of the engineering course at Massey is that much of our teaching is based in the laboratory where you get real hands-on practice. There is also a strong emphasis on embedding computing & electronics technologies in every-day consumer products and the importance of the user interface.

Earn more

A Ministry of Education report, undertaken over nine years, showed that those who complete a qualification in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics field of study have high relative earnings after they complete their study. Earnings can be substantially more than other graduates. Engineering and building-related fields have the largest earnings premiums over the national median of young graduates.


What might your career look like?

As an electronics and computer engineering graduate you will be as much at home designing an electronic or embedded hardware system as working on a large scale distributed software application.

There are well-defined career structures within computing and electronics, leading to senior specialist positions and a variety of management positions including project leader, programming manager, systems manager, or more general management.

Examples include:

  • Electronic engineering sectors
  • Systems management/programmer/analyst
  • All software sectors
  • Information technology sectors from research and development to service

Sought after by employers

You will gain a broad range of skills and practice as well as strong analytical and critical thinking skills. Massey graduates are sought-after by employers for their ability to be valuable employees from Day One.
