What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is typically used in education and industry contexts, so don't worry if you haven't heard the term before.

We use STEM as an umbrella term, referring to traditional science and engineering careers (e.g. research and development scientist, engineer, physicist, lab technician), as well as new and evolving careers in tech (e.g. AI trainer, robotic engineer).

Why attend the STEM Expo?

As the STEM industry evolves with exciting innovations and groundbreaking technology, new job opportunities constantly emerge. STEM offers a world of possibilities. This expo is inclusive for everyone, regardless of your year or field of study. 

Organisations attending the event typically include a variety of engineering firms, software companies and consultancies, FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) companies, energy companies, innovators in healthcare, public sector organisations, and trading firms. We also host New Zealand companies (e.g. in the medical and supply chain sectors) that are looking to attract students into the tech, digital services or IT areas of their business.

Over two days, you can explore exciting career paths, network with professionals from top organisations, and discover new opportunities that you may not have previously considered.

Prepare for the Expo

Visit our ‘Attending a career expo’ webpage for tips on how to get the most out of this opportunity and make the best impression on prospective future employers.

We have prepared a detailed list of the employers attending, whether they are recruiting/which roles they are recruiting, and the faculties/majors they are recruiting from. You can use this to prepare for the expo and do your pre-event employer research.
