Research at AUT
2016 Research & Innovation Showcase: Transformational Digital Futures
In the 16 years since it became a university, AUT has made impressive strides in developing its research capabilities. AUT is progressing rapidly towards its two key research goals: creating a vibrant learning community through research, and growing national and international research impact.
Research at AUT: Drivers
As AUT works to advance research success it is focusing on:
- Producing research that matters
- Growing research partnerships
- Increasing collaboration with industry
- Attracting research funding
- Building a culture of research excellence
- Encouraging commercialisation of research; and
- Strengthening research infrastructure and modernising research facilities
Research that matters
The research activities within each of AUT’s five faculties are overseen by an Associate Dean of Research who works closely with the Pro Vice-Chancellor Research, Innovation and Enterprise. We encourage you to explore the broad suite of research activities in each of the five AUT faculties.
AUT's research collaborations
AUT has a comprehensive research infrastructure, with a centralised Research and Innovation Office and the commercialisation arm AUT Enterprises Limited, as well as research leadership within each faculty.
Direct spending on research is approximately $23 million per year. This supports a range of research activity - from specific research projects to student scholarships, faculty research allocations and a Strategic Research Investment Fund.
