Our schools programme, which runs during school hours, is designed to give Year 11-13 students an opportunity to learn about some of New Zealand’s most interesting engineering projects and companies. In previous years, we've arranged visits from Xero, Engineers Without Borders, Fonterra, Air New Zealand and many more. Some engineering firms even organise tours of their facilities or projects.

Companies usually host students at their offices or take them on a site tour. Other firms prefer to send some of their engineers into a school to do a talk and activity. The schools programme is very popular as it gives students a one-on-one experience with engineers where they can test their aptitude and appetite for solving basic engineering problems through activities and games

If you'd like your students to get hands-on experience inside our most successful and dynamic engineering firms, register now.
