With 21,000 students, Unitec is New Zealand’s largest institute of technology in New Zealand and the largest provider of trades training. We have approximately 1,200 staff committed to the delivery of vocational and applied education and practically orientated research in a range of disciplines, including architecture, management & marketing, performing & screen arts, civil engineering, construction management, electrotechnology, nursing, language studies, and osteopathy.
