Careers

At the School of Engineering and Computer Science we are dedicated to preparing our students for rewarding careers once they graduate.

Our graduates leave equipped for successful careers within the industry.

Throughout our courses we focus on equipping students for work and provide them with opportunities to identify and move into worthwhile careers after they graduate.

We recognise that many students begin with a clear idea of their career path so our in-depth knowledge and training as well as our work experience and close coupling of our degrees with industry provides a relevant and practical start to their future career.

Other students use our flexible course options and transferable skills to find their area of interest while building up a solid academic grounding and give a breadth of career choices after graduation.

The Alumni Profiles page on the Wellington Faculty of Engineering website has interviews from previous Victoria University of Wellington computer science and engineering graduates.

100% of the First BE(Hons) Cohort is in Graduate-level Employment
