Student Engagement


The Student Engagement team provides support to students to ensure they have the best possible experience at the University.

This includes pastoral support such as counselling, financial assistance and early childhood education, as well as mentoring and support plans for all students. Support is available from Orientation through to employment.

Initiatives that are provided include Orientation, the Part I Assistance Centre, Women in Engineering Network (WEN), Tuākana for Māori and Pacific students, and information evenings with prospective employers.

The Engineering Student Engagement team also provides the opportunity for the students to connect with the faculty and student organisations, through social events.

Other groups supported by the team are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI), students with disabilities, refugee students and international students.
