What will I learn?

The Certificate in Science and Technology allows you to undertake a shorter course of study at university level than is required by a three year bachelor’s degree or one year diploma.

It is used primarily as a ‘pathway’ to help you complete subjects you need to enter another qualification.

If you are already enrolled at Massey this programme also enables you to add a complementary area of study to your main degree.

Choose your subjects

The Certificate in Science and Technology is more flexible than many other similar programmes - allowing you to choose specific courses you need for pre-requisites, or for interest.

Enter with industry experience

If you have substantial industry experience at a senior level this may be considered towards your application. This is on a case-by-case basis.

Use your credits toward a degree

You may have courses passed under this programme credited to a bachelor’s degree, or any “higher” undergraduate qualification provided the courses comply with the regulations of the degree in question.
