The Bachelor of Technology is an innovative, practically-orientated and future-focused degree.
It is designed to develop you into a highly skilled work-ready technologists prepared for a career in one of the following four endorsements:
- Environmental technology
- Food technology
These areas have been chosen for their alignment with local industry and the diverse range of opportunities available for employment.
Food technology is about the science of food. People who choose this pathway can work in positions as food technologists who develop new food products, analyse the components of food, or; food safety officers who audit the food manufacturing industry.
Environmental technology is about the science of conservation, biosecurity and environmental management. People who choose this pathway can work in positions as biosecurity officers who help manage pest animal and plant control, and help conserve local environments.
Biotechnology is about the 'doing' of science, this includes quality assurance of laboratory practices, the analysis of samples and reporting on sample results. People who choose this pathway can work in positions as researchers or laboratory technicians.
Agritechnology is about the science of agriculture, including soil and plant analysis, and plant and animal production. People who choose this pathway can work in positions as researchers or laboratory technicians with a focus on agriculture.
You will graduate with a broad and practical foundation in science and technology and will have developed other transferable and highly valued skills. We want you to be able to adapt and change as technology changes and have transferable skills so you can move between industries. The programme involves industry experience, allowing you to become familiar with your future work environment and with the practical experience and knowledge to be an immediate asset in the workplace.
As within industry, there is a focus on group and teamwork. Presentations, investigations, case studies and field trips will get you actively involved in finding the information you need to know.
What You'll Learn
You must complete:
- Nine core modules which are tailored towards each endorsement as you progress from Level 5 to Level 7. These modules give a broad background in technology and involve science, communication and IT.
- A further four to seven compulsory modules within your chosen endorsement. These modules complement the core modules to provide the specialist knowledge required to meet the criteria for a technologist in the field of the endorsement.
- A final selection of elective modules from the fields of Biotechnology, Environmental Technology and/or Food Technology. Four of these may be substituted with specific modules from IT and/or Business programmes already offered at Wintec.
You will participate in group work, projects, student investigations, presentations, field trips and other interactive activities. In your third year, you will complete an industry-based project relevant to your specific endorsement. Throughout the degree, you can base your assignments on your specific areas of interest.
