Experience Engineering

Nothing beats seeing and experiencing firsthand what we do as a diverse team of professional engineers and engineers in training.

We engage with our schools and communities to demystify engineering, provide insights into university life at Waikato, talk with our students about their experiences, and why the world needs more creative engineers.

Experience Engineering (E²)

Join us for the next Experience Engineering (E²) event in 2021

E2 is an on-campus event where students visit us for a exciting day of tackling engineering design challenges. This highly popular event provides an opportunity for a glimpse at some of real-world problems our students are helping to solve throughout their engineering degrees.

Workshops on Campus

Contact us to organise a workshop right here on campus for your students. We have a range of different activities on offer in our awesome laboratory facilities. We are more than happy to organise a tour if that sounds like something your students would be interested in. Our workshops will engage your students and get them excited about a future career in Engineering.

Study Engineering Presentation

Our study engineering presentation aims to promote the option of Engineering as a future career. One of our lecturers will give a bit of an idea about what our Engineering degree looks like at Waikato including videos of competitions, prototypes from projects and more. A student ambassador or two will then give 'their story' to the students. This is roughly a 5-10 minute informal presentation about how the students got into engineering, how they are finding it, where they are hoping it will take them, and a bit more generally about life at university.

Focussed Workshops

Get in touch with us and we can organise a visit with your school to run a variety of focussed workshops depending on what you need. In the past we've run design workshops at schools to fit in with the technology curriculum where students got through the design process and finished by building a dirty prototype. We are more than happy to work with you in order to provide an engaging and hands on workshop to help support your curriculum.
