Civil & Electrical Engineering Students (BEngTechs and NZDEs)

Over the past few years, we have found that international students commonly experience difficulties with the English language, particularly as it is spoken and used in New Zealand. Regretably, this often leads to these students failing courses with a relatively high English content - such as Engineering management, Professional Engineering Practice, and in particular for civil engineers, Materials (includes Geology), and Project management.

This course will provide additional support to all Engineering and surveying students within the Departments of Civil Engineering, and Electrotechnology, and will run throughout the semester.
