Eastern Institute of Technology


Many people have reaped the rewards of a quality education at EIT over the last 30 years. The Institute offers an extensive range of programmes. There are now more than 130 programmes offered at postgraduate, degree, diploma and certificate level, across an impressive range of subject areas in four faculties: Applied Science, Business and Computing; Health Sciences; Humanities, Arts and Trades; Māori Studies – Te Manga Māori.

EIT programmes combine practical skills with a sound theory base. Many can be studied on a full-time or part-time or on-line so there is an increasing opportunity to earn while you learn. Open Entry courses enables people who don’t have academic qualifications or don’t feel ready for a higher level of study, an introductory pathway to achieving a fulfilling career.

EIT has two main campuses one in Taradale, Napier, Hawkes Bay and two in Gisborne. There are also learning centres throughout Hawke’s Bay and Tairāwhiti, Gisborne where students can start their learning in a smaller environment close to their home. Hawke’s Bay offers an excellent lifestyle, plenty of sunshine, with a variety of restaurants, cafés and wine trails. The choice of entertainment options is extensive, with plenty of outdoor adventure activities available. Compared with bigger centres, Hawke’s Bay has another key bonus: stress-free commuting.

With only a 15 – 20 minute commuting time between Napier and Hastings, congestion on the roads is virtually unheard of in this region. Studying at EIT also means that accommodation and travel costs are lower, compared with other provincial areas. Gisborne, the first city in the world to see the sunrise each day. Gisborne is a landscape of sandy beaches, great surf, golden vineyards and palm-studded streets. It’s small enough to be friendly and welcoming, yet big enough to have all the amenities of the major centres, including shopping, cinemas, cafes, restaurants and entertainment, all within the relaxed lifestyle Gisborne is famous for.
