Te Whare Takiura o Manukau The Host

ConCOVE is a directorate of Te Pūkenga, trading as Manukau Institute of Technology Limited (MIT). However, ConCOVE has its own Director and Board, and operates independently from MIT, within MIT policy guidelines.

MIT has been transforming lives through education for more than fifty years as one of the largest providers of technical, vocational, and professional training in New Zealand, with campuses located in Ōtara, Mahurangi, and the Auckland CBD, along with TechPark and MIT Manukau in Manukau City Centre.

Every year, 11,000 students choose to study with MIT, where academic qualifications from certificate to degree level are delivered, and where students graduate with the real-world practical experience they need.

MIT recognises it has a special obligation to serve the people, communities, and employers of South Auckland. Achieving significantly improved tertiary education outcomes in this region is critical to the country’s future economic and social prosperity. 
MIT continues to encourage research to inform teaching and to further develop a research culture by supporting staff in a variety of research activities. Emphasis is also placed on the importance of the connection of the Institute with the wider business community through research. The past few years has seen a growth in research projects carried out in collaboration with other organisations — including practitioners in the field, and other tertiary providers. These are important relationships in the development of a research culture, and it is anticipated that collaborative research, internal and external to MIT, will continue to grow.

Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) has created a centre of excellence for engineering and trades education in South Auckland. MIT TechPark, where ConCOVE is based, is a purpose-built facility with the latest technology and innovations to ensure quality training for all. It brings all the institute’s trades and engineering schools under one roof for the first time since MIT was founded almost 50 years ago.
