The future of UTS
UTS has come a long way in just 29 years, achieving as much (or more) than institutions twice our age. UTS ranks first in Australia and eighth in the world for universities under 50 years old according to the QS Top 50 Under 50. One of the keys to our success is our future-focus and our determination to own the future. Our vision is to be a world-leading university of technology.
Our purpose is to advance knowledge and learning to progress the professions, industry and communities of the world.
The values that guide our performance and our interactions with each other, with students, our partners and the wider community are:
- Discover and share new knowledge and new ways to lead through our research, teaching, intellectual debate and use of technology;
- Engage and collaborate with each other, our students, alumni, partners, professions and communities, locally and internationally;
- Empower each other and our students to grow, contribute, challenge and make a difference;
- Deliver on our obligations to each other, our students, our partners and communities while maintaining high standards and ethical behaviour; and
- Sustain our local and global environment, organisational health and our ability to create a positive, viable future.
To build our reputation during the second half of our current strategic planning cycle (2014–2018) we are:
- Leveraging our environment to connect students, staff, alumni, industry and the community to create sustained opportunities for collaborative learning, innovative research and enduring relationships.
- Increasing the scale, quality and impact of research in our discipline fields; and
- Engaging our students in creative and inspiring learning that enables them to build strong professional identities, future-focussed graduate capabilities and global citizenship. Leading UTS into a sustainable future, fostering creativity, agility and resilience in our people, processes and systems.
Campus of the future
The UTS City Campus Master Plan is a once-in-a-generation vision to deliver a vibrant and engaging education precinct. Through the Master Plan, UTS has invested more than $1.3 billion to fundamentally change the way we deliver teaching, learning and research.
The Master Plan has created a series of new buildings, major upgrades and improved pedestrian connections, right in the heart of Sydney’s southern CBD. It is becoming one of Australia’s most recognised university campuses, with teaching, research and industry engagement spaces. These spaces support the delivery of UTS’s collaboration-and technology-based model of learning, and our industry-focussed research. The City Campus of the Future will become a destination for staff, students and visitors alike.
Our vision has already garnered wide support with government, industry and private donors. This support is evidenced by the $50 million Education Infrastructure Fund grant from the Federal Government for the recently opened Broadway Building and the $20 million gift by Australian-Chinese business leader Dr Chau Chak Wing.
A revitalised Alumni Green sits at the heart of the new City Campus. This “green heart” forms a key element of the City Campus Master Plan vision, which responds to a number of key drivers within the UTS strategic plan and is set to transform the atmosphere for students and staff alike here at UTS.
The key aims of the Master Plan are becoming reality and:
- Deliver a revitalised campus that matches our position as a leading university of technology;
- Create a global city campus with an identifiable heart;
- Create a “sticky” campus, a place where students want to study, learn and socialise;
- Embrace new teaching and learning paradigms, including the library of the future;
- Create cutting-edge new research spaces, innovative infrastructure and laboratories of the future;
- Build an engaged campus with dedicated areas for joint university and industry activities, plus industry precincts distributed throughout;
- Create a porous campus integrated into the surrounding community with a clear pedestrian network and connections to adjacent transport, commercial and cultural hubs;
- Commit to holistic sustainability goals;
- Consolidate faculty locations and student services hubs; and
- Accommodate future student and staff growth.
