Science

Study science at AUT and develop the skills to build a rewarding career, undertake scientific research and contribute to a sustainable future. Our students tell us that our commitment to them makes science at AUT a place where they feel they belong.

Our staff are passionate about teaching, committed to student success and widely published internationally. Because we keep our class sizes smaller than elsewhere, it’s easy for students to interact with lecturers. In our science degrees, each student group of six or seven is also allocated an academic staff member as a mentor throughout their degree.

Research in science

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across science.

Outstanding labs and facilities

Our students have access to top facilities and equipment for their research, like aerial drones, testing suites and marine research vessels. Training labs include the AUT Roche Diagnostics Laboratory – which has state-of-the-art medical and biomedical testing machinery, and is the only university lab of its kind in New Zealand.
