Welcome to Auckland
University of Technology.

More than 29,000 students from 150 countries study at AUT
across our three campuses in Auckland’s central business
district, on the North Shore and in Manukau, making us one
of the largest universities in New Zealand.
AUT is ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world and
15th in the world for international outlook. 15 of our subject
areas are world-ranked and we are rated a 5-star university
by rankings agency QS.
At AUT we aim to provide our students with exceptional
learning experiences that combine the best of digital
resources and technologies with the best teaching
techniques and practice. Our students learn in an engaging
environment which encourages them to participate and
develop their own opinions, to challenge and be challenged,
and to gain knowledge and learn how to apply it in real
situations. Students are connected to industry and business
through work placements, internships and entrepreneurial
programmes, and engage with our communities through
volunteering and leadership initiatives.
AUT has more than 950 doctoral students and more than 60
research institutes and centres. We undertake international
research in biotechnology, epidemiology, addictions and
rehabilitation, astronomy, artificial intelligence, big data,
human nutrition and metabolism, communications and
economics, amongst others, and have award-winning
academics in these fields.
I hope this prospectus provides you with some useful
information about AUT. I look forward to welcoming you to
our university.

“While I was at AUT, I was part of the drama club and the debating
club, went on a student exchange to Denmark, was a finalist at AUT’s
entrepreneurship competition together with my brother, and I also
got to attend the Kea World Class New Zealand Awards. All of these
events meant I got to meet some awesome and inspiring people.”

“I think that AUT recognises the changing needs of employers and is
preparing its students for that. One example of this is the AUT Edge
Award, which enables students to develop the C skills that are highly
sought after by employers – collaboration, co-operation, community,
curiosity, communication and creativity. This ensures that AUT
graduates are well-rounded when they finish university.”
Amritpal Kaur
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechatronics Engineering

“I earned an internationally ranked degree, worked with professional
athletes, learned from some of the most prestigious professors in the
world, travelled and lived in a new country that’s rich in culture and
heritage, and met some of the greatest friends that I could ask for.
Most people only ever dream of these things, but I got to live them
thanks to AUT.”
Scott R Brown
Doctor of Philosophy - Sport and Recreation

“Coming to AUT from little old Hawke’s Bay, at first I was afraid that
starting my new journey in a different city would be overwhelming.
But everyone was extremely welcoming and I quickly became
involved in all the activities on offer.”

“Studying at AUT is the best choice I ever made, and I would definitely
recommend the Master of Engineering. It’s a great choice for Chinese
students. I also love that AUT has a Chinese Centre to support
Chinese-speaking students, as well as language courses for students
with lower IELTS grades.”
Xiaoyue (Eviv) Hu
Master of Engineering

“AUT seemed like the place that would help me if I needed it,
without me even having to ask. For someone who was travelling
almost 12,000 kilometres to a new home, this was a strong form of
reassurance. The staff at AUT are absolutely phenomenal, and every
paper I took was backed up by support from the library, academic
counsellors and the various workshops offered.”

“Business offers so many ways to make a positive impact. When I finished my
AUT degree, I knew I wanted to be in the sustainability space. I’ve always been
interested in social enterprise and the concept of sustainable business. I
wanted a role where I could work with corporate business to achieve the
goals of social enterprise and change business as usual. My experience
at AUT has given me the confidence that anchors me, and I had access
to so many opportunities. I had inspiring lecturers and met so many
incredible people who are still my friends and mentors today.”

1. New programme, subject to CUAP approval. “AUT is a great place to study. The academic staff are really committed to
mentoring and collaborating with students, and I appreciate the research
infrastructure to support doctoral students. I have ample resources for
conducting high-quality research in the field of accounting and, most
importantly, I have supportive mentors who have invested in me. With the

high-quality research skills and professional networks I’ve developed
throughout my time at AUT, I feel totally prepared to pursue my career in
academia once I graduate from AUT. I’m grateful for my time as a doctoral
student here and would definitely recommend applying to AUT.”

“When I saw AUT’s creative technologies brochure in the
careers room in my secondary school, I immediately
thought ‘That’s me’. I love that this degree covers
everything – the arts, problem-solving, engineering
and technology. I’m passionate about all these
things, and in any other degree I would have to
choose. Technology allows me to find creative
ways to solve problems. My classmates and
I are now thinking about starting a creative
technologies agency. Creative technologies
is a field not many businesses specialise
in yet, and by starting our own agency
we can offer our skills to benefit other
organisations and continue working in
a field we love.”

Claudine Nalesu

Bachelor of Creative Technologies



Creative technologies crosses
the boundaries between
creative arts, engineering
and entrepreneurship. At
AUT, you’ll experiment with
things like augmented reality,
robotics, gaming development
tools, e-textiles, electronics
and sound engineering within
a collaborative project-based
studio environment. Your
knowledge will be in demand
within a wide range of cutting-
edge industries. The world
is changing fast, and people
with imagination, advanced
technological knowledge and
entrepreneurial skills will be
the ones to shape it.

the Bachelor of Creative Technologies provided a way to learn vital industry skills
in a way that appealed to me. I loved the fact that our projects were treated more
like real work experience than study. AUT has a modern and trendy feel. It’s in
central Auckland and is the beating heart of a thriving technological industry,

which allows students to be involved in real projects.”

“I’ve always had a passion for Africa, and now almost
all of my work is based in central and southern Africa.
When I’m filming things like gorillas in Rwanda I can’t
help thinking how amazing it is that someone is actually
paying me to film this. For me, this is a childhood dream
come true. One of the things I’m particularly proud of

was filming wild dogs and hyenas for National
Geographic Channel’s Africa’s Hunters. Wild
dogs are historically difficult to film, and I’m
very proud of the footage I’ve managed to get.
I initially wanted to become a war journalist
but then realised it wasn’t the right choice
for me. By my second year at AUT I knew
that I wanted to pursue documentary

“I had heard that at AUT you have more
opportunities to talk to your lecturers,
but it was much more than that. We had a

test before we started our degree and Dr
Ross Bernay – the head of the teacher
education department – stood at the door,

shook our hand and welcomed us in. He
addressed me by name and got to know
me. It showed that they actually cared

who I was. AUT offers an inclusive and
culturally responsive environment
that I highly recommend.”

a placement at Northcote Central Kindergarten where I now work. The AUT
lecturers were amazing – so supportive, inspiring and knowledgeable. I also made
some lifelong friends during my studies and learned not just what it takes to be a

great teacher but also a lot about myself. I would say that every paper I took
at AUT is relevant to my job and has meant that I’ve been able to hit the
ground running.”
