MIT TechPark

A new centre of excellence for engineering and trades education

Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) extends a new centre of excellence for engineering and trades education in South Auckland. MIT TechPark is a purpose-built facility with the latest technology and innovations to ensure quality training for all.

TechPark brings all the institute’s trades and engineering schools under one roof for the first time since MIT was founded almost 50 years ago, these include:


MIT will move schools in a staged approach into the new TechPark building. The dates work in with schools academic programmes with the intent to minimise the impact on students. Teaching staff will communicate and instruct students directly throughout the process.

TechPark new location

The new TechPark building is situated on the corner of Lambie Drive and Manukau Station Road. It is across the road to the existing MIT Manukau building currently home to the schools of nursing, health and counselling, business, and digital technologies. The site address is 58 Manukau Station Road

The site's location offers ease of access to and from the campus, as it is on the doorstep to the Manukau bus and train terminal. MIT promotes the use of public transport and other modes of transportation, like cycling, to reduce traffic congestion and car parking demand.

There is bicycle, motorbike, scooter and electric car charging parking available onsite.

There are limited car parking spaces with control barriers. These spaces will be made available for all the MIT community (staff, students, and visitors) and the barriers will open by swipe access using your ID card or pressing for assistance. There is a mix of reserved and public use zones –pay and display during certain times. Disability parking is located at both the front and back of the building parking lots.
