Materials and Process Engineering Papers at Tauranga (2020)
The Materials and Process Engineering programme covers a wide range of skills and contains two engineering disciplines that overlap in many areas. The materials engineer makes critical decisions in selecting the best materials for a particular function; the process engineer makes critical decisions in the processes and utilities required to manufacture the product. For example, materials engineering involves understanding the properties and uses of wood and steel, designing and constructing new filters for sewage treatment, and providing new materials for the energy industry. Process engineering include converting trees into paper and fibre board, iron sand into steel, effluent into drinkable water, and gas into electricity.
Materials and Process Engineering is available as a specified programme for the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (BE(Hons)).
To complete the specified programme in Materials and Process Engineering, students must complete the following programme.
For a full list of offerings in this subject, including those available in Hamilton and online, see the Catalogue of Papers. Not all qualifications and subjects can be taken in full in Tauranga. See what can be studied in Tauranga.
