AUT Auckland University of Technology
AUT bills itself as the University for the changing world, and as New Zealand’s youngest and fastest growing university, it is well positioned to be just that.
For AUT, the goal is to produce graduates who are ready for the future. They offer a number of innovative programmes that can prepare you for the technological changes and complex demands of tomorrow. Courses such as the Bachelor of Creative Technologies link creative arts, design, digital media, computing, engineering and entrepreneurship. There is a BA in English and New Media, or a Health Science degree for would-be paramedics.
See the undergraduate courses available at AUT.
In addition to teaching, AUT has a strong focus on innovative research with impact in areas such as biotechnology, artificial intelligence and nutrition. This is helped by strong links the university has with business, industry and the community.
AUT’s 3 campuses cover the Auckland area
More than 28,000 full or part-time students are studying or researching across AUT’s three campuses, the City Campus in the heart of Auckland city, along with the North Shore and South Campuses. Each of the campuses has a distinct character, reflecting its environment and mix of students and programmes.
The City Campus has over 13,000 students studying a range of disciplines, including design, business, engineering, Maori development, hospitality, languages and communications. The North Shore Campus is the base for health sciences and education programmes. Also on the North Shore, the AUT Millennium is a specialist sports sciences facility with world-class training facilities, athlete accommodation and sports science laboratories.
AUT South Campus was established in 2010 with plans to expand to more than 4,000 undergraduate and postgraduate EFTS by 2020. The campus offers new opportunities for the development of innovative curricula structured to be responsive to the needs of the region’s business, industry, schools and community groups.
