Matthew Yu, NZTA

Earning: Approx $50,000
In a nutshell: Working in different engineering teams as part of NZTA’s four year Graduate Development Programme.
Why? “I can help make the road network more efficient and safer for people to use.”

Pathway Rosmini College, Year 13: Calculus, Statistics, Music, Physics, English
University of Auckland: Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in Civil Engineering

When he left college, Matthew Yu was offered places in music, law and engineering degrees. His father, a quantity surveyor, was in favour of a construction-related career and his music teacher also encouraged him to choose engineering “and leave music as a hobby.”

Matthew had water resources related summer jobs but was most interested in transportation engineering, so his final year papers included both water and transport topics. He’s now a graduate engineer at the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), where he rotates between different roles as part of their four year training programme.

“It’s great,” he says. “I have the opportunity to gain work experience in many different organisations in the field of transport engineering.”

Matthew is currently working on the Victoria Park Tunnel. “It’s by far the most exciting project that I’ve ever been involved with,” he says. “The Victoria Park Tunnel is a very big project involving many fields of engineering including transport, structural, water, mechanical, electrical and environmental.”

He has a site engineer role on the project, which involves checking details and liaising with work teams, surveyors and the other site engineers. He inspects before concrete is poured to make sure reinforcement details are correct, and develops solutions for engineering details such as steel reinforcement details for non-stress-bearing locations.

Part of Matthew’s job is to keep tabs on the costs of the work and work with the Quality Team when things haven’t been constructed according to the drawings. He also gives briefing talks and coordinates with the other site engineers to make sure they use resources efficiently, for example sharing concrete pumps.

Matthew says, “Working in a client organisation like the NZTA gives me a chance to provide useful inputs into projects, so that I can help contribute to making the road network more efficient and work towards safer journeys.”
