About the College of Engineering

The College of Engineering is renowned for the quality of its research. The College of Engineering's commitment to research excellence has been recognised in both of the most recent Tertiary Education Commission's Performance Based Research Funding (PBRF) audits in 2004 and 2006. We are currently rated top in the New Zealand PBRF research assessment for the subject area Engineering and Technology, and third in both Mathematics and in Computer Science & Information Technology. We also house the only School of Forestry in New Zealand.

The College's position at the forefront of emerging technologies and innovation is largely due to the 160 academic staff members and 300 postgraduates who repeatedly push the boundaries of engineering, forestry, mathematical and computer science research. The world-class laboratories and testing facilities are also central to the College's standing. The College's Research Themes include BioTechnology & BioEngineering, Energy, Environmental Engineering, Forestry, Information and Communication Technology, Infrastructure, Materials Engineering and Systems Modelling. The College has particularly strong expertise in robotics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, software development, electric power engineering, timber and structural engineering, and earthquake engineering research.
