Support, Development and Achievement

ICA students come from all over the world and having a mixture of different cultures enable ICA to form a diverse and harmonious international family. ICA offers a unique educational environment that focuses on individual development and achievement. The classes are average in number but still small enough to make students feel like a valuable member of the ICA family.

Quality teaching from our qualified staff, a supportive environment, and a multi-cultural experience provide a framework for the success of the students. ICA recognises each student and the continuing contribution they make to the society at a local and global level. The variety of ICA programmes enable a pathway for students to both domestic and international opportunities in business employment and higher education.

ICA students are inspired to discover and apply their intellectual and creative potential to responsibly contribute to the society. As students, they will learn to reason, adapt, innovate, communicate, and develop so they can respond to the rapid changes in the modern workforce.

In ICA, students will have an excellent opportunity to learn in a modern and stimulating environment. Having the interest of the students’ future in mind, ICA is determined to work closely with stakeholders and relevant organisations to create opportunities for the students of all departments – Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical), Information Technology, and English.


Most of our teaching staff hold a doctoral degree or are PhD candidates.The English tutors in Auckland are qualified tutors with CELTA or TESOL certificates. Most of English tutors hold a master degree or above in English language teaching or relevant field. 


ICA maintains strategic, academic, industry and community alliances with various organisations. Students benefit from alliances that pool and integrate resources, guidance and intellect to provide quality education and produce desired outcomes such as employment or further studies options.
