About us

We understand the heart of modern business

The Auckland ICT Graduate School

The Auckland ICT Graduate School is a joint initiative by the University of Auckland and the University of Waikato, established to meet the increasing demand for industry-ready ICT graduates. You’ll be taught at either our Auckland campus or our Hamilton campus, and at the premises of our industry partners. Qualifications will be awarded jointly by the University of Auckland and the University of Waikato.

As well as connecting universities, we’re also forging a strong partnership between New Zealand’s tertiary and business sectors. We have long established links with some of New Zealand’s largest and most renowned companies.

As one of our students, we encourage you to have close contact with your business mentors and advisers. These relationships will equip you with a holistic understanding of how technology is used within industry, and facilitate future innovation.

As one of our business partners, we encourage you to give industry talks and engage with our industry advisory group, as well as offer placements for our student interns.

Our Vision

At the Auckland ICT Graduate School, our mission is three-fold:
1.    To offer students a direct pathway into an ICT career
2.    To provide employers with high quality, industry-ready graduates who possess both ICT skills and business awareness
3.    To grow New Zealand’s technology sector by investing in people who will drive future innovation
