Dr Brian Pauling, Educator and Founder of NZBS


Dr Brian Pauling is the man who helped establish the NZBS, and the applied degree programme it's best known for, back in the early 90's.

The BBc degree was revolutionary for its time. It was founded on principles that defied traditional university thinking about degree level education. As Brian explains to School Head, Tony Simons, "Learning for Capability", has since become accepted in the mainstream of tertiary education.
