At the present time few graduates in physics and mathematics are employed in private industry in New Zealand, and the major openings for them are in Government Departments, such as Scientific and Industrial Research, Civil Aviation, Agriculture, or in school teaching.
The demand for technologists graduating in botany, zoology and geology is also mainly confined to Government Departments. The exception is perhaps in geology, where oil companies send graduates to appropriate post-graduates' schools for training in Oil Geology.
The N.Z. Forest Service has its own school for the training of foresters and will take Bachelors or Masters in Botany. Graduates in Zoology arealso taken and given a further training in forest entomology. Technologists in Agriculture are employed in the various research stations of the Department of Agriculture, or on field work.
In the engineering field the Ministry of Works, N.Z. Electricity, and Civil Aviation offer a very wide range of careers in the respective branches of engineering.
