Working with industry
Unitec believes that when students work with industry professionals they learn hands-on what it’s like in the work force, and can learn the skills to excel when they find a job. Our teaching approach of Think.Do combines with this industry learning to instill innovative thinking along with a proactive approach to work. Below are a few articles covering how our students have been working with industry and how well they’ve been doing.
