Join us to familiarise yourself with the faculty and its support structures, meet fellow students and prepare for your first week of lectures.

During Orientation we have a number of activities and information sessions that will help prepare you for the challenges ahead, including tips and strategies for staying on top of your studies.

The day starts at 9am with a pōwhiri and welcome by key faculty staff and students. You are invited to assemble at the gate on Waipapa Marae in front of the ancestral meeting house Tāne-nui-a-rangi, 16 Wynyard Street (behind the Human Sciences Building). You will get the opportunity to know the Faculty of Engineering's staff, fellow students, and ask any question you have about your new programme of study.
