  CAE has now closed

The Centre for Advanced Engineering (CAE) ceased operations in June 2015. An on-line archive has been established to provide a permanent record of CAE's activities and accomplishments and contains:

  • CAE newsletters (1989-2015)
  • CAE publications (books and major project reports)
  • CAE subject-specific reports
  • 2012 Lifelines Archive (CAE report and source documents)
  • Miscellaneous material (annual reports and other CAE-related material).

All items in the archive (with some exceptions) will be able to be downloaded as a pdf file without cost.

This archive will be hosted by the University of Canterbury and should be operational by October 2015.
Once it is accessable a link will be placed on this page. In the meantime, please use the addresses below for any queries.
