Encyclopedia > Lincoln University (New Zealand)

Lincoln University is New Zealand's second newest university, formed in 1990 when Lincoln College, Canterbury was made independent of the University of Canterbury. Its undergraduate study areas include agriculture, commerce, computing, engineering, environment, food, forestry, horticulture, hospitality, landscape, Māori planning, property, recreation, sciences, transport and winemaking.

Its primary campus is located in Lincoln, Canterbury.

Lincoln University began life in 1880 as the Lincoln School of Agriculture. From 1896-1961 it served students under the name "Canterbury Agricultural College", and was affiliated with the University of New Zealand until that institution's demise. From 1961 to 1990, it became Lincoln College, a constituent college of the University of Canterbury, until achieving autonomy in 1990 as Lincoln University. It is considered the oldest agricultural teaching institution in the Southern Hemisphere.
