dc.description.abstractA comparison of course structures is undertaken between the 3-year Management Group’s Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil) and the Washington Accord accredited 4-year Bachelor of Engineering (Hons)(Civil) at the Universities of Auckland, Canterbury and Southern Queensland. Analysis is also included for the Engineers Australia endorsed Master of Engineering Practice at the University of Southern Queensland that is designed to bridge the knowledge gap between Technologist and Professional Engineer. On the basis of the analysis the difference in full time study between Sydney and Washington Accord degrees should be no more than 1 - 2 years assuming similar course breadth and depth across qualifications at the same NZQA levels.en_NZ
