You are encouraged to attend all field trips as they form an important compliment to lecture material and laboratory classes.

If the field trip is “compulsory”, you MUST attend in order complete the requirements for the BE(Hons) qualification.

Part II and Part III Mechanical Engineering students are given an insight into the variety and scope of engineering activities in New Zealand through a series of one day field trips to local engineering and manufacturing companies.

They are an important compliment to lecture material and laboratory classes. Attendance is compulsory.

Several trips to local organisations may also be arranged within certain elective papers. The companies visited may change each year.

Your department will provide specific trip details and safety requirements.
