Faculty of Engineering and Trades

At the Faculty of Engineering and Trades we have some of the finest teachers and facilities in New Zealand. All our students benefit from smaller classes, flexible learning options and courses to suit every level.

At our seven schools you can kick start your apprenticeship, fast-track your qualification if you've already got experience and enter at any level from foundation to bachelor's degree.

Our Schools


Recognition of Prior Learning Programme

Your work experience or previous tertiary study may count towards achieving your qualification. Our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) programme is designed for those who already have the on-the-job skills and knowledge, but want to take their career to the next level with a qualification.

With RPL we can measure and match your existing skills against credits in our courses – creating a tailored path of study that will not only save you money, but also help you to complete your qualification faster.

To learn more about what our programmes can offer you, view our available programmes by subject area, or make an appointment to speak with one of our RPL facilitators by phoning 0800 62 62 52 (or email enquiries@manukau.ac.nz).
