Our Engineering Practice - Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waikato programme is strongly based on project-based learning. It combines mechanical engineering, science and mathematics papers to give you a good understanding of engineering theory and practice.
You will study topics such as mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis and electricity.
Mechanical Engineering students have unique, hands-on learning opportunities at Waikato:
- You could be part of the Waikato Formula SAE team, where students design and build their own race car, and compete in the Formula SAE Australasia competition, usually held in Australia.
- In your third year, you will work in groups to design, manufacture and test a machine to meet a real-world design brief and specifications. Students in the past have designed a pin-collecting machine for ArborGen Australasia.
