The BSc(Tech) is a flexible degree, designed to provide you with the necessary practical experience to stand out among other science graduates.
It is internationally recognised, meaning you can find work anywhere in the world. A high percentage of graduates actively seeking employment find it within six months of graduating.
This degree includes 10 weeks of relevant work experience. The Cooperative Education Unit assists in matching students with placement opportunities, and offering reflective learning and skill development after the placements are completed. Students are regularly offered permanent roles following their placements.
Heading into the workplace with a BSc(Tech) from Waikato means you'll have spent the summer between your second and third years gaining relevant work experience and, in most cases, being paid for your efforts.
To prepare you for the workplace and gain an understanding of how the business world works, the BSc(Tech) includes a workplace preparation paper prior to starting the work placement in addition to a wide variety of science papers.
The first year of the degree is similar to the BSc, enabling you to explore a range of scientific disciplines, broaden your opportunities and lay a foundation for you to build on, even if you haven't studied science before.
From second year your major will form the core of your degree and give you a much deeper understanding of a particular discipline. Minor subjects enable you to design a tailored programme that helps you differentiate yourself and ensure you have a unique skill set.
Our science minors will give you a taste of a complimentary discipline to broaden your knowledge and demonstrate the breadth of your scientific skills. Alternatively, select a minor from a supporting non-science discipline to show employers you can apply yourself in a range of fields.
