Waikato Institute Of Technology Facts

Located in Hamilton, New Zealand, Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) was founded in 1924. Wintec has three main campuses in Hamilton, the Hamilton City campus, Hamilton Gardens campus and Rotokauri campus (formerly Avalon campus) along with providing facilities at the Thames and the Otorohanga trade training center. 

  • Wintec offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree, diploma, certificate courses along with other short-term courses for both new tertiary education candidates and for working professionals.
  • The institute’s main feature is the purpose-built environments so that students can be taught in a practical way which will influence how they use their skills and knowledge in their career. Sport-science performing hub, specialist restaurant and kitchens, and others are essential to a student learning at Wintec.
  • Each course is taught at a different place of the several campus areas to suit the needs of the course. For example, Engineering and hospitality are taught on the modern campus of Rotokauri with all facilities and workshops, whereas a Landscape design or Horticulture student would learn at the lush green campus of Hamilton Gardens.
  • Facilities are provided in a well thought out way. For international students, a separate team looks out for them by helping them out in things like accommodations and other immigration-related matters. Prayer rooms with washing facilities are provided at both campuses’ StudentHubs. Distance learners can get their study materials, and resources delivered right at their doorstep.
  • Accommodation is provided on both campuses, with two accommodation facilities at the Hamilton City campus and one facility called the Eco Village available in the Rotokauri campus. Meals are offered if requested in both of the campuses and are fully equipped with all the amenities a student would need.
