Engineering stimulates the mind. Kids get bored easily. They have to get out, get their hands dirty: makes things dismantle things, fix things. When schools can offer that you will have an engineer for life –Bruce Dickinson.

A bit about us for the Boys! 

What you really want to know. We will teach you, we will learn from you. We have a fun and safe workshop, where you can learn all of the skills required to become a Trade Certified Engineer. 

The Managing Director represented New Zealand in the worlds for Engineering – so he knows where you need to start, what you need to learn and that you can continue to grow as a person and as an engineer. We have all types of engineers and people here, there is no square other than 90degrees, what is normal? 

Engineering is a career that can have you travelling all over the world. Anything you can imagine you can create. The only limit is your grit passion and determination. With that your skill, engineering and person will thrive. Question everything. 

We are excited to be a part of this new initiative and cannot wait to help develop challenge, learn from and grow Hawkes Bays up and coming engineers.
