Eastern Institute of Technology

The Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) offers you over 130 qualifications from certificate and diploma, to degree and postgraduate level at campuses in Hawke’s Bay, Tairāwhiti (Gisborne) and Auckland. EIT is regarded by the Tertiary Education Commission and Ministry of Education as one of the exemplar tertiary education providers in New Zealand.
It is nearly forty years since the Taradale and Tairāwhiti campuses were established as tertiary education institutions in Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne respectively. As a result of the merger between the former Tairāwhiti Polytechnic and EIT Hawke’s Bay in 2010, EIT is the major provider of higher education on the east coast of the north island. One of the key strengths of the 130 programme offerings is that they range from foundation to degree and post- graduate level. There are satellite campuses throughout the region to enable easier student access as well as many courses delivered on-line.
