Engineering Units Get International Accreditation

The Vice Chancellor of the University of the South Pacific, Rajesh Chandra, was pleased to announce the international accreditation of the university’s two engineering programmes.

Eighteen programmes of the university had been internationally accredited to date where four of the programmes were recently internationally recognised.

“We were very pleased to see that our two engineering programmes were accredited by the Institutions of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ). That’s a difficult accreditation to receive as our engineering programmes are new,” he said.

“When it comes to getting international accreditation, the university is making major efforts.”

He said the year was a success because 30,000 students had joined the university this year.

“Despite the difficulties that Cyclone Winston caused, the university went on to a record enrolment and what that says is people value what the University delivers because not all Institutions managed to maintain that at all,” Mr Chandra said.

“And that is the main message about what the university is able to do, what it has been able to do is to persuade everybody that if they send their students to USP, they get the best education.

“They get the best chance to be employed and get the chance to succeed and do great things… We know that we can do better if we concentrate on delivering quality and we have made a major focus on quality around the international accredited.”

He also thanked the support of the invited guests and university staff for their commitment that led to the success of the university over the years.

He dedicated the evening to share the university’s journey and successful projects especially with the new campus that was built in the Solomon Islands recently.
