Massey University has a proud research tradition which dates from its very beginnings as an agricultural college. Mementos from Massey’s early years live on in such things as the Drysdale and Perendale sheep breeds, named after Massey staff Dr Francis Dry and Sir Geoffrey Peren respectively.
Today Massey remains a power to be reckoned in both the biotechnology and land-based sciences, but, as you will see in these pages, over the past 80 years Massey has evolved to become much more. It is now a large, modern university with a robust multi-campus, multi-modal structure. It embraces a remarkable range of expertise, and with a track record of problem solving it is uniquely equipped to contribute to New Zealand’s economic, cultural and social development.
