Location, location, location: Design Factory New Zealand has new spot at Wintec | Te Pūkenga City Campus
It’s hard to miss Design Factory NZ’s new location on campus. Just look for the striking and colourful vinyl designs on the windows of the ground-floor workshop spaces, situated in A Block opposite the Hub and the library. After six years in their previous space, the team have moved to deliver their innovation and problem-solving training in the heart of the City Campus.
The Design Factory NZ provides courses in innovation and problem solving for Wintec | Te Pūkenga students, allowing them to work in multidisciplinary teams to develop future-work related skills while completing their qualification. Since their inception in 2016, they have had over 300 students complete their Level 6, 7 and post-graduate courses, and run a range of workshops for business and community groups.
