Business Partners

The Auckland ICT Graduate School, a partnership between the University of Auckland and Waikato University, began in 2016 with Government start-up funding, to deliver more of the skilled IT graduates that the country needs. The School provides programmes for ICT graduates and non-ICT graduates, who have strong critical thinking, communications or business planning skills.

We work with an Industry Advisory Group (IAG) whom provides support and advice to ensure we produce highly-skilled ICT graduates. Joining the IAG provides companies with a unique way to work with and support the upcoming generation of rising ICT Professionals.

The School runs two programmes; a Postgraduate Certificate in Information Technology (PGCertIT) for those transitioning from another field into IT. Students range from those wanting to upskill an existing degree; people in the workforce and students wanting a pathway into the Masters in Information Technology. One of our students completed his Bachelors in Law and immediately entered the PGCertIT. He has subsequently completed a Masters at Duke University, USA in Intellectual Property, Privacy Law, and Law & Technology.

The Masters in Information Technology (MInfoTech) is contributing well-qualified graduates with the diverse range of skills necessary for the industry to develop highly innovative solutions to future projects. A very practical example of the success of the programme is that many of the interns have continued in their internship workplace in both full-time and fixed-term employment.
