Our Info Sheets

Engineering Education Hubs
First published March 2017, updated November 2017

Engineering e2e has begun work to develop engineering education hubs – regional groups of employers, secondary schools, universities and ITPs – to establish effective pathways into engineering and offer a single entry point for engineering qualifications.

This one-page sheet provides a brief overview of the initiative, which is is based on the findings in the report Creating engineers: climbing the educational staircase

First published September 2017, updated November 2017

Micro-credentials are packages of learning designed to meet specific learner needs. In this info sheet we look at: definitions of micro-credentials; our role in exploring the potential for this model to succeed in New Zealand; plus current trials and proposed pilot engineering micro-credentials.

Who we are and what we're doing
First published May 2017, updated October and November 2017

This info sheet was designed to share with people who are new to the Engineering e2e programme. It explains why e2e was set up, what we are doing and notes some of our achievements and plans.

Secondary-Tertiary Pathways Project
First published March 2017, updated November 2017

Engineering e2e is funding six collaborative initiatives between secondary and tertiary institutions to deliver programmes to prepare and pathway students into tertiary engineering study. This info sheet looks updates their progress in 2017.

Integrating the systems
September 2017

What differentiates Engineering e2e from other initiatives? We’re trying something new – integrating systems that enable collaboration between and across industry and education sectors.

This info sheet explains how the programme was founded on a strong evidence base and influenced by the McKinsey Center for Government’s report Education to employment: designing a system that works.

A quick guide to engineering qualifications
July 2017

Engineering e2e asked employers to help provide plain English definitions of engineering qualifications and the roles that graduates play in industry. This guide will be reviewed in approximately six months.

Our shortfall in ITP-educated engineers
June 2017

An overview of the numbers of Level 6 to 7 engineering graduates required to provide for New Zealand’s current needs, and the shortfall.

The sheet includes brief profiles of four engineers and looks at the role of ITPs.

Fixing the leaky engineering education pipeline
May 2017

We’ve updated our ‘leaky pipeline’ infographic to include some of the engineering e2e initiatives being developed or proposed to help solve the problem.

Make the World briefing
March 2017

The briefing includes highlights of the Make the World public awareness campaign and recommended steps to improve public understanding of Level 6 and 7 engineering qualifications. 

Engineering our future
November 2015

Engineering e2e’s second strategic report to the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment outlines progress on four major workstreams: educational delivery, employer engagement, promotion and guidance.

An introduction
September 2015

This introduction to Engineering e2e briefly outlines what the initiative is, key achievements to date and future plans. It is useful for sharing with other people/organisations to give them an overview of the programme.

Talking with employers
June 2015

Our workshop brought together employers from a range of engineering disciplines to discuss the personal, interpersonal and cognitive capabilities valued by their organisations. The group recommended further action around incorporating these capabilities into engineering education.

Engineering Change
March 2015

This strategic report to the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment outlines the issues around the engineering supply chain which result in an under-supply of engineering graduates, and makes some recommendations for overcoming them.

The leaky pipeline
February 2015

The leaky pipeline is an infographic showing where potential engineering graduates are lost as they progress from primary school through secondary and tertiary education.

A useful diagram to show where students drop out of subjects which lead to engineering study.
