Dodd-Walls Centre Students


 

                                         DWC students at the 2015 DWC symposium

The Dodd-Walls Centre has approximately 100 students from partner universities across New Zealand. DWC students have the opportunity to be involved in student-run activities and wider Dodd-Walls Centre activities.

There are two local chapters of the Optical Society of America and a student chapter of SPIE (International Society for Optical Engineers). In addition there are social activities such as happy hour, sporting events and student retreats.
