We put the Engineering in IT. This is a home for IT Engineers with an interest in technology that is safe, ethical, well engineered, fit for purpose and managed through its life-cycle.

Te Tira Hangarau IT Engineers community enables members to discover and share new ideas in IT Engineering, undertake professional development and find networking opportunities. It provides a resource for Engineering New Zealand to draw on and it will seek to influence the national agenda in matters relating to technology.

What the group does

This is a fledgling group heavily reliant on volunteer time. We encourage all members to not only enjoy what the group offers, but to contribute in some way as well. A couple of hours from you can positively impact tens to hundreds of your peers.

The IT Engineering group will facilitate the following activities for the benefit of its members:

  • Local seminars to provide education, training and professional development
  • Newsletter to highlight news, events
  • Meetups to share experiences and views, including for Young IT Engineers
  • Site visits and talks from on-site IT Engineers and IT Architects
  • A LinkedIn page, a Meetup page
  • Collaborations with other TIGs and Branches to host events
  • Collaborations with other IT bodies (eg. ITP, NZTech)
  • Support for IT Engineers engaging in the chartership process
  • Engaging with government to influence regulations and standards around technology
