Study 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 you to interact with your lecturers. During your science degree, you also frequently get out of the classroom to apply your knowledge during field trips or by working on projects with one of our many industry partners.

Graduate certificates and diplomas

Research in science

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