Our courses are designed in consultation with industry and scientific research organisations. Programmes have been developed and delivered in association with advisory committees featuring leading reserachers from a variety of scientific backgrounds.
Our partners include:
|Bay of Plenty Polytechnic
In addition to being offered at the AUT city campus, the Bachelor of Science is available nationally through our affiliation with the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic (BOPP).
|Shanghai Institute of Technology
In addition to being offered in New Zealand, the Bachelor of Science can be completed through our co-managed programme with the Shanghai Institute of Technology (SIT) in China.
The School of Applied Sciences is strongly focused on preparing students for rewarding careers in a wide array of industries and professions. Our close links with the scientific community ensure that your programme is applied and industry relevant, providing you with a transition between your studies and the working world.
In the final year of your degree Bachelor of Science students undertake a research project based on an issue faced by industry. The year-long project requires you to work on a specific development or improvement to an existing problem. You will investigate possible solutions through experimentation and research, and interpret and report the results.
Projects can be continued at postgraduate level where you may be working in conjunction with companies on research funded projects. Example of projects include:
Our Research Institutes welcome approaches from industry and business to develop commercial projects.
Biotechnology Research Institute
KODE Biotech is an intellectual property stronghold that licenses its KODE™ technology platform to market leaders, spin-out ventures and academia. We are strongly committed to maximizing the commercial potential of the KODE™ technology platform, and are interested in working with new commercial or research partners to achieve this.
Earth and Ocean Sciences Research Institute
Biodiversity and systematics are two of the most neglected cornerstones of resource management. Despite New Zealand being considered one of the top 35 biodiversity hotspots in the world, with the fauna and flora of large areas of land and sea comparatively unknown, systematics, trained systematists, and the study of biodiversity are fundamental to appropriate resource management.
