Waikato University Engineering Design Show

October 19

Our annual Engineering Design Show is coming up on October 19th & 20th and we’d love you to come and join us!

What is the University of Waikato Engineering Design Show?

This world-class Engineering Design Show is the flagship event of the School of Engineering and the high-point of our degree programmes. It provides an opportunity to see firsthand how our students excel in designing, building and testing new products, structures and solutions for the real world.  Students also compete within the event for industry-sponsored prizes.

More info can be found at: 

For our visitors:

Alongside the fourth year project displays and student competitions, we have a range of activities for visitors to participate in:

  1. Professional Engineering at Waikato – presentations by our staff to come and find out a little more about studying Engineering with us.

  2. Best photo prize – we will have some cool stuff on display and it’s down to you to get creative and enter our photo competition! There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

  3. Navigate your way through the show on our Engineering scavenger hunt! The more clues you complete the higher your chance of a prize!

  4. Come and talk to our engineering student ambassadors as well as our students displaying their work to get the inside knowledge of what studying engineering is all about!

  5. As well as several smaller spot competitions and prizes!


We anticipate guests coming for around 2 hours to get a good flavour of who we are and what we have to offer. 

  • The day begins at 9am and goes until 5pm (this goes for both 19th & 20th Oct). We encourage visitors to come in the morning to see the most action! 

  • We will be hosting presentations to secondary schools at 9am and 11am each day. 

  • The rest of the event is an expo style and students can stay until 12:30, where we will be putting on lunch for attendees or you are welcome to stay until the end of the usual school day at 3pm.

Disclaimer: We are planning this event with the hopes that we will be at alert level 1. We will only be able to go ahead with the Engineering Design Show if New Zealand is at alert level 1 at the time of the event. If we experience a change in alert levels we will be in touch.
