Field Trip to Sky Tower

The University of Auckland IEEE Student Branch are proudly hosting a field trip to the Sky Tower. This trip will offer future engineers at the University of Auckland a chance to experience some great sights related to the communications industry and includes opportunities to:

  • View the world’s largest FM combining system, broadcasting 16 FM radio stations from one antenna
