Other opportunities

School Workshops on Campus

Contact us to organise a workshop right here on campus for your school. We have a range of different activities on offer in our awesome laboratory facilities. We can also organise a guided tour of the campus so students can get a glimpse of what life at the University is like!

Our workshops aim to engage students and get them excited about a future career in Engineering.

Study Engineering Presentation at Your School

What is professional engineering? What does a career in engineering actually mean? What does a degree at Waikato look like and why we think you'd love studying with us?

To answer these questions and more, an engineering lecturer and undergraduate ambassador will visit your school, make a short presentation, and provide a short activity to help the students experience engineering. Get in touch and we will happily arrange a visit for you.

Focussed Workshops

Focussed Workshops

Get in touch with us and we can organise a visit with your school to run a variety of focussed workshops for your students!

In the past we've run design workshops at schools to fit in with the technology curriculum. In these, students were walked through the design process and finished by building a dirty prototype.

We are happy to work with you and provide an engaging and hands on workshop to support your curriculum.
