An opportunity for students studying databases or data science courses

24 March 2017

The Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries (CAI) has developed an Access Database (named Kitty), to assist with processing of applications and enrolments. Essentially, if a student applies for a programme with CAI, the core information is pulled through from the University database (CS9) to Kitty as an individual entry, with core information. From that point we enter additional information into Kitty manually.

The reason for Kitty is that CAI requires a number of students to submit online portfolios or auditions - information which can’t be captured in CS9.  

Kitty does a good job, but we need to take it to the next level, and we don’t have the expertise in-house. We’d like someone to come and review what we have and help us decide if we can further enhance Kitty, or if we need to move to something different, and then help us to achieve that.

Ideally we are looking for a student studying databases or data science courses. We are looking for a commitment of eight hours a week (flexible) initially for 12 weeks, to review our current database, make recommendations and help us move to the next level.

Please contact Chris Rollins, Student Academic Services Engagement Manager, Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries

Entrepreneur opportunity

14 March 2017

We are three students with an idea that we believe will change the way students enter employment after graduating.

We have taken the concept successfully through the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship's Summer Lab programme and are now looking to build an online platform so we can bring the idea to life.

This is where you come in! We are looking for a website guru to join the team as co-founder — someone that knows how to handle back-end and front-end programming, along with some knowledge of database management.

If you're keen and capable, all you've got to do is send Bryce an email at briefly explaining why you’re keen to join. If you have an online portfolio then feel free to attach that also. Submissions close Monday 20 March 2017.

Masters studentship in evolutionary robotics and dynamical systems Mathematics / Computer Science

23 January 2017

A masters studentship covering (domestic) MSc fees for one year.


People often compare our brains to computers, but there are many things that we can do that computers can’t and vice versa. If the brain isn’t a computer, then what is it? 

Evolutionary robotics allows us to investigate non-computational forms of artificial intelligence. A genetic algorithm is used to tune the parameters of a set of equations so that when those equations are used as a robot controller, a desired intelligent behavior is produced. The behaviour is then analysed so as to understand how it is accomplished. This allows us to investigate relatively simple, but intelligent behaviours that have been designed by evolution, which are generally quite different from those that have been designed by engineers.

Project Aim

Most work in evolutionary robotics has focused on a particular form of coupled differential equations called continuous time recurrent neural networks. In this project we will investigate other dynamical structures such as heteroclinic networks or systems of delay differential equations, to see how these systems can produce intelligent behaviours such as categorical perception or associative learning.

The project may involve some real robotics, or could be all simulation, depending on the successful candidate and their interests.

Other information

The ideal candidate will have an undergraduate degree in Applied Mathematics or Computer Science, and will have experience coding in Matlab, Python or a similar language. The ideal start date will be Semester One (March 2017), but students who cannot start until Semester Two (July 2017) will also be considered.

The project will be co-supervised by Associate Professor Claire Postlethwaite (Mathematics) and Dr Matthew Egbert (Computer Science). For more information please email To apply, please send an (unofficial) transcript and a covering letter to the same address. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Authentication, access management and identity in cloud services

08 December 2016

Identity and access management in cloud services is one of the foremost and critical areas in cyber security today. This workshop is designed to give delegates hands-on experience with the configuration and testing of a variety of leading-edge systems used in cloud service operations. This will involve using equipment for identity and access control via wireless/mobile devices, smartcards and multifactor authentication – all of which are essential for the secure operation of cloud services.

This workshop will be limited to 12 delegates only. The prime focus will be to use the equipment to build real cloud-based security systems. Thus this workshop will not be a series of lectures. It would be of benefit if delegates had a working knowledge of Linux commands as well as knowledge of the configuration of Windows services as a variety of wireless/mobile, smartcard and multifactor devices will be configured and tested.

In this workshop delegates will experiment with the security features commonly used for cloud services. These involve wireless/mobile devices, smartcards, RSA multifactor token authentication, QR code systems and cloud-based physical access controls.

Rocket Lab Graduate Opportunity - Embedded Programmer

23 Nov 2015

About Rocket Lab

For most people the idea of a rocket launch brings up images from the Apollo era: monstrous booster engines, ground-shaking noise, and a behemoth of a machine slowly climbing against the grasp of Earth’s gravity. This iconic image, the one that transformed us into a space-going species, captures the power and strength of rockets. But it is not the image that will make space a commercial reality.

Replace this image with the bustle of a high speed assembly line, where rocket boosters feed off a conveyor belt connecting to pre-encapsulated payload stages, rolling out on to the launch pad one after the other. This image, by contrast, is about speed and efficiency and what the Rocket Lab Electron orbital project is all about.

Rocket Lab has created a legacy of excellence by developing innovative solutions to ambitious aerospace problems for the likes of DARPA and other technically demanding customers. Now fully funded by major Silicon Valley venture capital funds, Rocket Lab is focused on redefining how the world accesses space by building Electron; a revolutionary launch system designed to meet the launch requirements of the rapidly expanding small satellite market.

Known in the industry for rapidly developing cost effective solutions from the ground up, Rocket Lab believes in giving highly skilled engineers ownership of complex aerospace systems from start to finish. This ethos offers engineers the satisfaction of moving from the conceptualization and design phase through to hands on work; building, testing and ultimately flying their creations.

Rocket Lab offers a unique opportunity for the world’s best and brightest engineers to work with a young team passionate about what they are doing while also enjoying the high standard of living New Zealand has to offer.

About The Role

An opportunity for a recent graduate to join the Rocket Lab team working alongside an experienced Embedded Software Engineer, you will be assisting in the writing and testing of software that will be embedded into avionics hardware used to control the Electron launch vehicle. This fast paced role will also see you working closely with other members of the Rocket Lab team developing software and debugging on operational hardware such as liquid rocket engines. Minimum requirements

You will need a good understanding together with at least 12 months’ experience gained through your university studies or relevant work experience in:-

Essential Skills:
Embedded programming
Git revision control

Bonus Skills:
Linux kernel hackery
Raspberry Pi experience
Arduino experience
UDP socket network programming experience

You will also need to be a strong team player, with excellent communication skills and the ability to work under pressure to strict deadlines.

Important Information:

For security reasons detailed and in-depth background checks will be undertaken prior to any employment offers being made to successful candidates.
