UTS research environment

Research at UTS

At UTS, we focus on impact-driven research that makes a significant contribution to knowledge and shapes the world we live in.

We're consistently ranked Australia's number one young university, and our sights are set even higher.

Our overall strategic goal is to increase the intensity, excellence, impact and reputation of our research to position UTS clearly within the top 10 Australian universities and the top 10 in chosen fields globally by 2020.

Ninety-four per cent of UTS’s broad research fields have been benchmarked at world standard or above by the Australian Government’s 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation

Our postgraduate research program is designed to produce the leaders of the future. We offer a supportive, multidisciplinary research environment where you can study alongside world-leading experts in your field.

UTS also offers one of the most extensive researcher development programs in Australia to provide you with the skills to succeed — even if you’re new to research.

Research focus areas

As part of the UTS 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.
