New Zealand Agricultural Fieldays 2017
Mystery Creek, Hamilton, Wednesday 14 June - Saturday 17 June
The University of Waikato will once again host a stand at the New Zealand Agricultural Fieldays - the largest agricultural event in the southern hemisphere.
In a world where clever engineering and ideas come together to produce some truly remarkable creations, our researchers are collaborating with industry to solve some of the world's big problems.
A shiny, unnamed and methodical robotic guest will have the centre spot on our site this year. Learn more about how engineering and technology are having a positive impact on our ability to harvest higher quality, more resilient crops and increase efficiencies in the horticultural industry. Share some ideas of your own with us! Our stand is easy to find inside the Mystery Creek Pavilion.
Careers and Education Hub
The University will also have a stand at the Fieldays Careers and Education Hub – a fun and interactive zone facilitating interaction between those wanting to explore career options in the agricultural sector and agricultural education providers and agribusinesses. If you are interested in finding out about study opportunities and career paths at Waikato, visit the Hub (off E Street) and have a chat to one of our advisers.
