The Tech Futures Lab experience

This is a learning environment like no other. We’re all about people. People who experiment, fail fast, collaborate, and design solutions fit for the new world, for a new future.

 

Tech Futures Lab is an education facility of The Mind Lab, an NZQA registered Tertiary Education Organisation under the provisions of the Education Act 1989. Candidates at Tech Futures Lab are enrolled with The Mind Lab which is approved by NZQA to award the Master of Technological Futures.

 

This is a Master's that will fast-track your learning and your career. After the first twelve weeks you’re back at work, the home office or lab practically applying your learning to your day job, starting your new career or venture or kicking off a transformational project.

I came to Tech Futures Lab to 'find my tribe' - a group of people who worked in agile, imaginative ways across industries and examined the big issues of the day - poverty, education and the environment to name a few.
