Wellington ICT Graduate School is pleased to announce that we have a new campus at NEC House, we will share this central city space with Victoria University of Wellington’s CMIC (Computational Media Innovation Centre).
We’re excited to base three of our programmes across level 2 (with the co-working space Credenza) and level 3 of NEC House. The space was refurbished to create three studio teaching spaces for the Master of Professional Business Analysis, Master of Software Development, and Master of User Experience Design students starting this year.
These courses were previously taught at the Te Aro campus, Victoria University’s School of Architecture and Design, but due to growth have expanded to NEC House on the corner of Taranaki and Manners Street. This purpose built new space has the latest technology with a range of workspaces that encourage collaboration and innovation whilst providing flexibility.
The campus was officially opened last night with karakia, a tour, and guest speakers. Boyd Multerer, co-founder of X-Box Live, spoke of Wellington’s forward-thinking spirit whilst Ian Williamson, Pro Vice-Chancellor at Victoria University, talked about the opportunity to foster relationships with industry professionals.
“This central city location will give students and staff a direct connection with the digital, film, gaming, and tech industries that are thriving all around Wellington, as well as giving those industries close contact with the latest research and upcoming talent…continuing to attract global and local talent, and offering a diverse range of postgraduate options in one location” said Ian Williamson, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Commerce at Victoria Business School.
