The Industry Alliance Programme (formerly the Wellington ICT Graduate School) supports the delivery of industry-focused postgraduate degrees built on connections between the University and local industry. Our programmes have been created with input from industry professionals. They are designed to build on people’s existing talents and skills and provide hands-on experience with real-world projects.
We are dedicated to developing strong working relationships with industry groups. Our programmes provide opportunities for students to engage with industry and transition into a career in their chosen field. We partner with local technology businesses to provide guest lectures, workshops, mentorships, and projects for our students. Through these activities, students can gain the experience they need in real-life work environments.
As a student, you’ll be exposed to many different projects and experiences while you’re with us. You’ll be working on individual projects as well as actual industry-based projects.
Conversion Master’s degrees
Our conversion Master’s programmes are designed for people from a non-ICT background and open to anyone with a Bachelor’s degree. This allows people to change career directions, upskill, or reskill, without having to start from scratch.
