In­for­ma­tion evening this Thurs­day at Mt Al­bert cam­pus

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Unitec ed­u­cates peo­ple so they can kick start their ca­reers. They build re­la­tion­ships with in­dus­try, busi­ness and the com­mu­nity to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for them and their stu­dents.

One such joint ven­ture is the new IBM NZ De­liv­ery Cen­tre based at the Mt Al­bert cam­pus.

Based on IBM’s suc­cess­ful De­liv­ery Cen­tre Model with the Univer­sity of Bal­larat, the De­liv­ery Cen­tre will pro­vide Unitec stu­dents with part-time em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, as well as ac­cess to schol­ar­ships, stu­dent in­tern­ships and grad­u­ate re­cruit­ment pro­grammes with IBM.

‘‘Work­ing with a highly re­spected global com­pany will give our stu­dents the head start they need to get a great job when they grad­u­ate,’’ Unitec chief ex­ec­u­tive Dr Rick Ede says.

‘‘Bring­ing in­no­va­tive busi­nesses such as IBM into the ed­u­ca­tion en­vi­ron­ment is about match­ing the skills of our stu­dents with the de­mands of busi­ness and pro­vid­ing stu­dents with the ex­pe­ri­ence they need
