Engineering events and outreach

Public events


Massey lecturer Sunil Lai is speaking at the nationwide Techweek event in May on the Brain Computer Interface.


Brain Computer Interface (BCI) allows humans to interact with machines via thoughts. In active BCI setup, the system learns to map the brain signals to desired actions the human wants the machine to perform, for example operating a prosthetic limb or a wheelchair. We can even detect the emotional state of a person’s mind using passive BCI, which has applications in product testing and medical domain. 

This event will include an overview of how BCI works and a demonstration

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.


  • Agriweek – As part of Agriweek, school students took part in an augmented reality (AR) experience using Microsoft’s HoloLens headset, enabling them to interact with an energy drink plant.
  • Water quality testing - Massey engineering staff are working with the Pūhoro STEM Academy group in a mechanics lab to help them with end of year external exams.
  • A group of students from Wanganui Collegiate attended a 2-day on-campus workshop at Massey, where they were engaged in experiments relating to electronics and biochemical engineering, and product development.


We run an active STEM engagement programme with schools in the Auckland-Albany and Palmerston North region. These provide activities and learning to underline student curriculum at NCEA Level 1 to 3. Find out more by contacting us below

Research seminars

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.

Resources for schools

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.
