Waikato Masters Graduate Alice Wang spends a lot of her work life travelling throughout the world.

Alice now works at Magritek, a scientific instrument company specialising in compact benchtop NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) technologies. Based in the New Zealand office in Wellington, Alice is the Technical Sales Specialist for the Asia Pacific region and looks after sales activities in the company’s Asian markets.

“The responsibilities including selling our products, managing a network of channel partners, traveling, and attending conferences and exhibitions. This role combines my technical knowledge and people skills to connect with customers throughout the world” says Alice.

Alice, a previous Hillcrest High School student, studied Biochemistry as part of the Bachelor of Science (Technology) degree and enjoyed it so much that she then went on to complete a Master of Science in Chemistry. Alice received a number of University and nationwide scholarships to fund her studies and was grateful for the support and approachability of the lecturers.

Alice was also fortunate enough as part of her undergraduate degree to all spend a year in London at Tata Global Beverages for her final work placement in her last year – a real stand out from her time at Waikato.

“The industrial work experience I gained during my final placement was a definite highlight during my study. I learnt a lot of things working with talented people, and gained some skills that couldn’t be taught in a classroom” says Alice.
