This page offers information about our research collaborators and partnerships.
Our research is supported in many ways. Some projects are funded by government bodies such as Creative New Zealand, the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology, the Digital Strategy Community Partnership Fund, Ako Aotearoa, the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology (FRST) and its business-oriented subsidiary Technology New Zealand (TechNZ), others are supported directly by industry players such as Microsoft Research Asia and Lucent Technologies, and international bodies such as ACM SIGCSE. Several SERL students have also been supported by scholarships from FRST and New Zealand’s Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). Several smaller projects have been supported by contestable research grants from internal AUT funding bodies.
The software engineering research community is large and international, and so we have many collaborative research partners. Staff and students within the Lab benefit from the expertise of this community, indirectly through, for example, shared data, and directly, through visits and exchanges.

We also have close links with many other groups within AUT. In particular, we work on collaborative research projects with other staff and students in the School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences (SCMS), including those associated with the School’s Research Labs in RFID, HCI/VI and Network Security and the Geoinformatics Research Centre (GRC), as well as the Knowledge Engineering and Discovery Research Institute (KEDRI), the School of Business and the School of Engineering.
We place high value on research that has, or could have, a real impact on SE practice and SE practitioners, so we (both staff and students) work with individuals and organisations actively engaged in the profession. Some of our industry partners have been…
