Eastern Institute of Technology

About EIT

The Eastern Institute of Technology is regarded by the Tertiary Education Commission and Ministry of Education as one of the exemplar tertiary education providers in New Zealand. It is nearly forty years since the Taradale and Tairāwhiti campuses were established as tertiary education institutions in Hawke's Bay and Gisborne respectively.

As a result of the merger between the former Tairāwhiti Polytechnic and EIT Hawke's Bay in 2010, EIT is the major provider of higher education on the east coast of the north island. One of the key strengths of the 130 programme offerings is that they range from foundation to degree and post- graduate level.

There are satellite campuses throughout the region to enable easier student access as well as many courses delivered on-line. An illustrated history of the EIT Tairāwhiti campuses was published in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of EIT in 2015.

The objectives are to highlight and analyse the contributions EIT (Hawke's Bay and Tarāwhiti) has made to higher education and workforce development on the east coast.
