Careers

Architectural Technician

Architectural technicians use their skills and technical know-how to transform vision into workable design. They spend their days planning, designing and advising on the construction and alteration of buildings.

This could entail inspecting proposed building sites, discussing ideas, local authority requirements and constraints with clients, creating designs and preparing drawings for houses and other buildings, specifying materials, applying for appropriate building and resource consents, and overseeing a project to its conclusion.

About the Faculty

Our Centre for Engineering and Industrial Design focuses on flexible, student-centred and project-based learning. Students get the chance to put their skills into practice by getting involved in industry projects that take place in real workplaces. 

Our ultra-modern $25 million state-of-the-art engineering and trades facility opened at our Rotokauri campus in early 2014. The facility provides our engineering students with an opportunity to learn in an environment that better reflects industry standards and uses the latest techniques, technologies and equipment.

Meanwhile, we’re working with industry to provide 'real-world’ research solutions to real-world industry challenges. For example, we recently acquired New Zealand’s first ultra-high definition, mass production, liquid resin 3D printer. With it, we’re working with companies to radically improve the way they think about and perform industrial design. In less than 24 hours, we can take a customer’s prototype drawing, translate it into a computer model, print it and deliver it into their hands.
