Women in Technology

Find out from our talented female students, graduates and lecturers why they are inspired by working in technology and engineering.

Women are underrepresented in these fields but AUT is working hard to encourage and support girls and women with a passion for computer science and engineering. 

When you study engineering at AUT, you’ll not only preview the technology soon to fill our homes and work places – you’ll have the opportunity to create it. You’ll have the skills to competently operate in highly regulated industries, and be exposed to a range of opportunities that could take you anywhere in the world.

You can choose from a range of engineering specialties including two new majors of architectural and construction engineering, along with  electrical and electronic, mechanical, computer and mobile systems, network and communication and, through our partnership with Australian Maritime College, maritime engineering. You'll also have access to our advanced labs - featuring high-precision Rapid Prototyping equipment, New Zealand's most powerful SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and extensive workshops.

AUT's engineering degrees are professionally accredited and internationally benchmarked*: IPENZ (Institution of Professional Engineers NZ) recognises our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) as meeting the Washington Accord and the Bachelor of Engineering Technology as meeting the Sydney Accord. The maritime majors at the Australian Maritime College are accredited by Engineers Australia.
