FSTE's Bachelor of Engineering – Electrical and Electronics and Bachelor of Engineering – Mechanical have received accreditation from the Institute of Professional Engineers New Zealand.
Two Engineering programmes of The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Faculty of Science, Technology and Environment (FSTE) have received accreditation from the Institute of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ).
The programmes are Bachelor of Engineering – Electrical and Electronics and Bachelor of Engineering – Mechanical.
USP Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Rajesh Chandra thanked the Faculty and School of Engineering for their efforts in getting the programmed accredited.
“I am thrilled with this news and congratulate the whole (FSTE) team for this fantastic outcome,” Professor Chandra said.
According to the FSTE Dean, Dr Anjeela Jokhan, the accreditation confirms that the two Engineering programmes are of the same standard as those offered in New Zealand.
“Engineering is a resource intensive discipline and USP has over the past five years put in a lot of resources to bring these programmes up to a level where they are internationally at par with programmes offered overseas, so this is a huge achievement for the University,” Dr Jokhan added.
Engineering degrees accredited by IPENZ are recognised as meeting the initial academic requirements for professional engineers.
