Massey lecturer Sunil Lai spoke at the nationwide 2018 Techweek event on the Brain Computer Interface. Brain Computer Interface (BCI) allows humans to interact with machines via thoughts.
Tech Simple is a free lecture series that brings Massey experts to you to explain some of the new technology in our world.
Upcoming talks are to be confirmed.
Massey University engineering staff participated in the Week of Engineering expos held in August in Auckland and Wellington.
There is so much interest in engineering! We spoke to people of all ages including prospective students, their influencers and the members from the industry. We had many interactive projects on display that kept the attendees and our staff busy right up until the last minute the Expo was open!
Experiencing Virtual Reality – A group of students from Russell Street School attended a workshop on Holo Lens Headset at Massey in August
Massey University’s School of Engineering (Albany) is bringing the Engineering Roadshow event to Auckland High Schools. The Roadshow is a mobile showcase of various projects covering all of our engineering degrees and consists of a lecturer, undergraduates and PhD Students. The Roadshow Team brings robots and other interesting projects that have been undertaken by our students. The event is visual and engaging and enables the students to get a sound understanding of what engineers do and what aspiring engineers need to study. Here is what school careers staff are saying about the roadshow:
“It was wonderful. To have the team come here made it very easy"
"So important for students to see the variety within engineering - they have no idea, until they have presentations like the Massey Engineering Mobile Roadshow, to enlighten them!”
We come to you.
Typically, the school library, large classroom or auditorium are suitable as long as there is space to accommodate the students attending and there is an area for the project displays. We normally allow 45 minutes for a session, which includes time for the students to get a closer look at the robots and projects as well as a chance to talk to the team.
Please contact Dianne Cook if this would be of interest to your school and we will endeavour to meet your requirements.
Several other high schools have contacted the team to register their interest.
The two-hour visit enables the students to get a sound understanding of what engineers do and what aspiring engineers need to study. The students gets hands on experience with using CAD software, making their own PCBs, programming mobile robots, and learning about 3D printing and manufacturing. We can accommodate 10-40 students in one visit.
Please contact Dianne Cook (D.Cook@massey.ac.nz) if this would be of interest to your school and we will endeavour to meet your requirements.
A few other visits to the Albany campus are in the pipeline and the details will be announced soon.
We have been working with Year 13 Pūhoro Stem Academy students interested in engineering across three terms on a different project each term related to a theme of “Sustaining our society”.
Students worked on “Waste Not Want Not” turning household rubbish into a new product, “Riding with the Sun” designing a solar array for charging e-bikes, and “The Production of Milk”, looking at the difference between small and large scale food production. Students came to Massey and build toy solar car using recycled plastics, rode and tested e-bikes and made chocolate milk on the bench top and then in the MIFST Pilot Plant. These students might be the engineers and technologists of our future.
16 July 2018: Two Massey students, Sarah Childs and Ben Lewis, went to Buller High School (Westport, South Island) to help the school’s robotics teams who are participating in the national stage of RoboCup Junior 2018 competition. Sarah and Ben gave valuable feedback to the school students on their projects during their overnight visit, which was fully funded by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) engagement programme provide activities and learning to underline student curriculum at NCEA Level 1 to 3. Find out more by contacting us below
Current research within the school is presented through a series of research seminars.
Topics include computer science and information technology, electronic and information communications as well as industrial management and innovation.
We offer posters and a video which outline careers in engineering and some of the exciting things international and New Zealand engineers have been involved in creating. These are free resources which you can download below.
