Bachelor of Aquaculture and Marine Conservation (NMIT)
This programme will provide you with specialist knowledge, as well as technical and practical skills relating to aquaculture.
On average you will go on one field trip a week, take part in at least three different work placements and complete applied research projects. The programme was designed with industry so you will graduate not only with the practical skills and knowledge in aquatic ecology and marine conservation biology but also communication and operations management skills so you can make an immediate contribution to the aquaculture industry whether locally, nationally or internationally. The programme provides you with flexibility through elective study options to choose the area, such as marine conservation or business, that you would like to study.
You will also be learning in the region where the majority of New Zealand aquaculture produce is grown. It is the leading producer of farmed Greenshell Mussels, King Salmon and Pacific Oysters in the world. The Nelson area is also a major hub of research in this field. The programme brings together the knowledge and expertise of Nelson and Marlborough aquaculture industry members as well as the Nelson scientific community to provide you with an informative and dynamic learning environment.
