Dean’s Message

The College of Engineering, Science, and Technology (CEST) is dedicated to assisting the nation’s economic and social development by providing relevant, high-quality education and training and applied research with a beneficial societal impact. Engineers and scientists, with their ingenious and creative abilities, play critical roles in our increasingly complicated modern world.

CEST is one of the largest College at the Fiji National University that offers both Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and Higher Education programmes in Engineering, Science and Technology, ranging from Short Courses to Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

The College’s goal is to produce graduates who are qualified with the right skills and are ready to be engaged in whatever field of work that they have been trained in. CEST encourages “hands-on” training components in the workshops and labs that simulates the ‘real work’ environment, and we work closely with the relevant industries to make sure that we are producing quality graduates to meet their human resources need and their capacity for the future.

The College comprises of a total of six (6) Schools, and these are:

  1. School of Building & Civil Engineering,
  2. School of Electrical & Electronics Engineering,
  3. School of Mechanical Engineering,
  4. School of Sciences,
  5. School of Mathematical & Computing Science and
  6. School of Transport.

The College offers more than a hundred (100) programmes in various disciplines across the six schools. The programmes are offered in Quarter (8 weeks) mode for the Certificate programmes, while the Aviation, Diploma, Bachelors and Postgraduate level programmes are offered in Semester mode (18 weeks). CEST programmes are available at different campuses and venues including Derrick Campus-Samabula, Nabua, Labasa, Ba, Namaka, Natabua and Nasinu. Students are requested to check and confirm where they want to pursue their programme of studies before enrolling.

The College promotes a positive and healthy learning environment that accepts the multi-cultural ethic and religious background of students and staff working together for our sustainable future.


The College recognizes the value in getting international accreditation and benchmarking of our programmes. We are currently pursuing the international accreditation of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) programmes in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and the related Diploma in Engineering programmes with Engineering New Zealand (ENZ).
