46 Aquaculture

46 46 Conservation Horticulture

Aquaculture is riding a wave of confidence. With the prospect of $1billion in projected revenue for New Zealand annually by 2025, its expansion relies on the development of a skilled workforce. Currently around 70 per cent of the industry is based in the Top of the South. NMIT has worked closely with industry and stakeholders to develop the country’s only Diploma in Aquaculture (Fish Farming and Fishery Management). It’s a qualification designed to meet the increasing need for qualified and professional people in aquaculture and fresh water fisheries management.

Opportunities for conservation careers are expanding. In addition to the conservation estates managed by the Department of Conservation (DOC), an increasing number of organisations now manage conservation responsibilities. These include local and regional councils, charitable trusts, iwi and nature tourism ventures. NMIT is the only tertiary institute in New Zealand that works in partnership with DOC to provide the Trainee Ranger programme. If you enjoy advising people on ways to protect the environment, protecting the diversity of animals and plants, controlling animal and plant pests, then a career in conservation could be for you. If you’re already in industry, then up skill or formalise your expertise with field skills training.

Futures: Aquaculture farmer, hatchery and nursery technician, fishery officer, environmental assessment and monitoring, marine biologist, researcher, eco-hydraulics scientist, marine and freshwater ecologist, environmental toxicologist, marine scientist, senior resource and environmental economist, resource planner, coastal and estuarine scientist, reproductive biologist, phytoplankton ecologist, molecular biologist, reproductive physiologist.

47 Viticulture and Wine There’s no better place to study viticulture and winemaking. Our region is at the forefront of New Zealand’s wine industry, producing 75 per cent of the country’s grape harvest with over 60 wineries and more than 300 independent growers. Perhaps the greatest asset for your study is our close links with industry. You’ll have the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience at wineries and vineyards through work placements and part time employment while studying. Facilities on-campus include a vineyard, a purpose-built winery and state-of-the-art laboratory. Study full time or up skill while in the industry with online, distance learning and industry training options. Futures: Cellarhand, cellar master, harvest machine operator, viticulturist, vineyard hand, vineyard manager, winemaker, assistant winemaker, winery manager, laboratory technician, research assistant, laboratory manager, wine sales and marketing.

Prepare for employment in the region’s extensive horticulture and viticulture industries, parks and recreation, plant nurseries, flower, fruit or vegetablegrowing enterprises. This industry may be for you if you enjoy getting your hands dirty, working outdoors, are interested in planting, growing, working with and harvesting plants and crops as well as working with machinery and equipment. Learn online in combination with practical work-based components supported by weekly seminars and workshops. Futures: Crop farmer, gardener, grounds person, landscape gardener, nursery grower/worker.

Futures: Conservation ranger, parks and recreation ranger, sanctuary worker, council worker, nature tourism guides, eco-tourism, conservation research, historic preservation, zookeeper.

Achieve your dream by becoming a scholarship recipient > Each year scholarships and grants are available to students studying at NMIT. Some apply to specific programmes and others are to assist students who fit criteria based on hardship or equity situations.

Half a Degree for Free (for local school leavers) Local school leavers could save up to $33,000 on selected degree study at NMIT. When you do the sums it all adds up. The more you borrow, the longer it will take to pay off. If you take out a loan of $30,000, with a starting salary of $35,000, it could take you nearly 17 years to pay it off. This is based on paying around $35 per week with an interest free loan

Industry and community scholarships Scholarships of around $90,000 from community and industry and from the NMIT scholarship fund are awarded to students each year. The scholarships values range from $500 up to $5,500.
