Alumni – The Mind Lab & Tech Futures Lab

During your time at The Mind Lab you become part of a community of change-makers and industry shakers. Our Alumni community is a constant source of inspiration and connection for graduates and students who complete micro-credentials.

With a joint mission, we have one group for graduates of both The Mind Lab & Tech Futures Lab. We are united by a desire to make positive change, utilise digital technology, and prepare for the future. We are stronger and can achieve more, together.

We love to celebrate the success, achievements, research and impact of our students. One of the ways we do this is through He Rourou, our open-access interdisciplinary publication filled with student work that we publish twice a year. View the first edition here (published November 2021).

We have an alumni Facebook and LinkedIn group, designed for you to connect with your fellow alumni, share events or jobs, and hear about what’s going on at The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab.

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou, ka ora ai te iwi
With your basket, and my basket, we will thrive
