Times-7 hosted a group of Summer of Tech
students at our premise in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, introducing them to RAIN RFID technology and our contribution as a reader antenna manufacturer. While the students gained insights into an exciting industry, it was a great chance for Times-7 to win young talented engineers for the RAIN RFID industry.
Summer of Tech is a non-profit programme helping students and graduates enter the New Zealand IT industry. They have been finding, growing and matching New Zealand’s tech talents with opportunities, since 2006. The students’ visit was organised by Cath Randall, Skills Development Manager at WREDA
and key part of the Summer of Tech programme.
Times-7 shares the Summer of Tech believe that the future of the country's (and the world’s) technology industry is in the hands of the next generation. That’s why we work closely with Summer of Tech, educating students on our industry and offering summer internships for significant work experience.
Together with Aviat and Tekron, two other Hutt based high-value manufacturers, Times-7 welcomed a small group of Summer of Tech students offering insights into our market & products, the production processes and current projects we are working on, demonstrating how they can make a real difference in the IoT-world utilising their unique skills.
