The aim of the New Zealand Diploma in Engineering is to provide skilled and competent engineering technicians who:

  • Apply engineering theory to practice, and competently perform technical operations to high standards, including ethical and professional responsibilities required by the engineering profession
  • Have a knowledge sufficient to permit informed, rational decision making in the specialist field of engineering and to implement these decisions
  • Will work collaboratively with construction workers, clients, authorities, agencies, industry and other professionals, to provide a comprehensive engineering service in the relevant specialist area, and
  • Have an understanding of different cultures, in particular an awareness and clear understanding of the tangata whenua and implications of the Treaty of Waitangi and the Resource Management Act
