iPREP (Industry and PhD Research Engagement Program) is an innovative initiative that helps PhD candidates engage and network with industry. The program is unique in that PhD candidates who have submitted their thesis for examination are given the opportunity to work in interdisciplinary teams with an industry partner on a 6-week project (with scholarship). 

Massey Thesis Writing Boot Camp

Doctoral candidates who plan to submit their thesis for examination by mid-year 2018 are invited to apply for a 3-day intensive writing opportunity. Dedicated solely to getting words down on paper (or a computer screen), this programme is designed to help candidates get over that final hurdle or to kick-start writing progress if it has stalled. Sign up to join other graduate research comrades at the same candidature stage in a no-excuses, no-time-for-procrastination, take-no-prisoners intensive writing weekend.

Massey 3MT competition

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a fast paced and exciting speech competition that challenges master's and PhD candidates to summarise the significance of their thesis work/research project in three minutes for a panel of judges and a diverse audience.
