Design Factory NZ is a constant hub-of-activity but on one Thursday a month, the activity stops and the attention is on a free public event, Lunchtime Learning.
Welcome to Design Factory NZ
We are a passion-fuelled, design-driven co-creation space where students work with industry partners to solve complex problems.
In our fast-changing, interconnected world, we believe it is increasingly important to cultivate your skills in creativity, your processes for problem solving, and your growth in the human-centred skills of empathy, listening, prototyping and testing.
Studying with Design Factory NZ places you in a team of students from across Wintec, learning the tools of co-creation and design - while giving you valuable experience solving real-world problems.
If you have a passion for solving problem and want to develop your own practical, design-driven toolbox, Design Factory NZ will be a valuable investment for your future career and challenges.
Increasing youth engagement in local government and dealing with waste left behind after major events, are just two of the problem-solving challenges Wintec’s Design Factory NZ students are working on.
