UTS is committed to practical innovation and to the development of impact-driven research that benefits industry and the broader community, helping shape the world we live in.
As part of our research strategy, we have chosen to build research capacity and performance in five Focus Areas aligned with the UTS vision, to be a world-leading university of technology: health, data science, sustainability, future work and industry, and social futures.
UTS's sustainability research spans all faculties, encompassing in-depth disciplinary and cutting edge trans-disciplinary research in clean energy, urban futures, climate change adaptation, water, food and resource management.
Understanding technological and societal changes in work and industry globally will be critical to the future quality of life and economic future of Australia, as we create new industries and adapt existing ones to changing environments.
We have Research Strengths and centres across the university, as well as collaborations in joint research centres with international universities and in large-scale joint research programs, such as ARC Centres of Research Excellence and Cooperative Research Centres.
