Quality Engineer Jobs

How to Enter

To secure a job as a Quality Engineer, it’s recommended to at least a New Zealand Diploma in Engineering combined with relevant work experience. However, completing a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) degree can greatly improve your competitive edge within the Manufacturing market


Typical Responsibilities

The typical day-to-day responsibilities of a Quality Engineer can include the following:

  • Testing manufacturing machinery, equipment and processes for faults
  • Developing solutions for faults and inefficiency
  • Developing strategies for improving machinery and equipment durability
  • Quality checking goods throughout various stages of production
  • Training and managing other Engineers



Many Quality Engineers develop their careers by moving into other specialist areas of Engineering, such as Mechanical, Maintenance, or Automation, or head into a Sales-based role. Alternatively, Engineers who stay within Quality Assurance can also work their way towards becoming Production or Manufacturing Manager.
