Engineering New Zealand

Aotearoa is facing a huge skills and diversity shortfall across STEM. Many fields of engineering are on Immigration New Zealand’s skills shortfall lists and 80% of future jobs are predicted to require STEM skills. STEM professionals are essential to driving major innovations and progress for our motu. So, to protect our future, we need more of them.

Engineering New Zealand created the Wonder Project in 2018 to address this issue. Their mission is to inspire more young Kiwis with STEM to help build a diverse and thriving future STEM industry. With support and funding from partners, their award-winning in-house team run the Wonder Project.
