Open Day Tōia Mai 2022
Our annual Open Day hosts people from around the Waikato region and beyond across our City and Rotokauri campuses.
Graphic design, illustration, sculpture, painting, photography, moving image, spatial design: Wintec gives students the skills and knowledge to turn their passion into a career.
Students will learn how to problem-solve and tell stories through a variety of mediums.
A career in graphic/digital design involves bringing ideas, stories and concepts to life through engaging visual interpretation.
Graphic/digital designers create everything from websites and computer-game graphics to motion graphics and animation and may work in a variety of industries, including entertainment, education, and advertising.
Fine art graduates interpret culture and the world in a critical way, communicating their ideas with imagination and skill.
Career options are wide: A professional artist will develop, refine and create work, submit grant and residency proposals, and reach buyers through exhibitions in galleries or their own promotion. Curators choose and coordinate work for art exhibitions, while gallery managers develop programmes and work with artists. An arts administrator might assist with project and event management, working on promotion and scheduling. Some fine artists complete postgraduate study and move into education roles as art teachers and lecturers.
Spatial design offers an ever-changing industry of new trends, ideas, projects and clients. Designers need a practical solution-focused working style and skills in project management.
