Dr Stuart Charters, yesterday began as leader of the Signal ICT (Information Communications Technology) Graduate School with campuses in Dunedin and Christchurch.
The school aims to strengthen New Zealand's tech sector, and is a collaboration between the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic, the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and the Ara Institute of Canterbury. He would continue as the head of informatics and enabling technologies at Lincoln.
He was excited to lead the first ICT school in the South Island. It would partner with industry leaders for teaching.
``Through disruptive innovation in the IT education space, and working in deep partnership with industry, we are gearing up to become an essential part of the tech ecosystem in the South Island.''
The school aimed to have at least 140 equivalent full-time domestic students across both campuses by 2019.
The Dunedin campus will be in the Granary Building, in Vogel St.
