A new world of work needs a new way of learning
Education is changing and Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) is changing with it, so our students can find success in a world that’s moving faster than ever before. At Wintec we nurture and guide individual students as part of a community so they are confident and equipped to navigate their way in the future world of new jobs and ways of working.


Design thinking and innovation
Our students are encouraged to work in cross-disciplinary ways. We are home to New Zealand’s first and only Design Factory NZ, a globally-connected co-creation space where students work with industry partners to solve complex problems.

We’re local and global
We are proudly part of the mighty Waikato but we educate students from around the country and around the world. We educate around 15,000 students each year in New Zealand and a growing number of countries across the globe.

Wintec has campuses across the Waikato and we are New Zealand’s only tertiary institution operating an international college in Jinhua, China. We provide offshore delivery in many places including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Thailand, South America and the Solomon Islands.

Our community
We are an integral part of our community. We work closely with employers, industry and community organisations to understand and respond to the skills required.

Through our graduates, students and staff we contribute positively to the regional and national economy, and play a role in its ongoing prosperity.

Our staff
We employ staff with industry knowledge, often practicing professionals in their given fields of expertise who foster new thinking, discovery and achievement. Their knowledge is passed on to our students through effective teaching, combined with state-of-the-art technology and modern campus facilities.
