Having studied at academic institutes in South Africa, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and Japan, Natassja Brits reckons WITT is up there with the best.
“WITT goes a long way in trying to make the learning experience comfortable and accessible. This is seen in the wide range of non-academic and academic support services which are offered by the institute” Natassja says.
It was a recommendation from Natassja’s mother, who lives in New Plymouth and has had positive dealings with WITT students and graduates in her employment, that saw the 30-year-old South African enrol at WITT.
“I have always had an affinity for things of a mechanical nature. I have a degree in forestry of which forest engineering was also one of my majors. Therefore I knew that mechanical engineering was the area that I was most interested in and wanted to learn more of,” says Natassja, who is also a WITT student ambassador.
On completing the course, Natassja hopes to work within the New Zealand mechanical engineering sector.
