Research is a key focus for AUT. We deliver nationally leading research in a number of areas, and value research collaboration with local and international organisations and communities. We constantly create new opportunities to collaborate on research that matters, and our range of diverse research facilities helps attract research partners, research projects and research funding, as well as providing opportunities for postgraduate students.
