A very warm welcome to UTS. We are a dynamic and cosmopolitan university that marks the gateway to Sydney — Australia's economic, multicultural, innovative and creative global city.
Hi, I’m Attila Brungs. I’m the Vice-Chancellor here at UTS. I’ve worked at and studied at universities all over the world and I can honestly say that UTS is by far the most enjoyable. I’m biased of course, but UTS really is a fantastic place to be.
To make the most of your time here, we’re continually developing programs to help you get the most out of yourself. To help you create and play with ideas, to help you succeed, to fail, all of these things before you even go into full-time work.
With more than 100 societies and clubs to choose from, you can find like-minded friends, build future networks, and importantly, have fun. Uni will be one of the most memorable and formative periods of your life. You’ll look back on these days, think about the friends you’ve made, the experiences you had, both in classes and in the social clubs, and the skills that you build you can draw upon for the rest of your life.
So throw yourself into life at UTS and really make the most of your time here. I wish you all the very best in your studies and really warmly welcome you to UTS.
UTS is a public university of technology defined by our support for the economic, social and cultural prosperity of our communities. We are measured by the success of our students, staff and partners and committed to research, innovation and the dissemination of knowledge of public value. We are, and always will be, an inclusive university.
UTS has an ambitious new vision, to be a leading public university of technology recognised for our global impact.
Through our education, research and engagement we will become an internationally great public university, delivering real benefit for society.
Our purpose is to advance knowledge and learning through research-inspired teaching, research with impact and partnerships with industry, the professions and community. More than ever, preparing and supporting our graduates to succeed in the future workforce; driving innovation and entrepreneurship; supporting open and rigorous public debate; and delivering excellent, impactful research will be the hallmarks of our success. To achieve this, our leadership in learning and teaching must be coupled with international renown in research and a world-class infrastructure that supports our vibrant intellectual environment. The achievement of our vision relies on attracting and connecting high quality students, academics, researchers and partners; people who are passionate about knowledge, learning, discovery, creativity and making a positive impact in the world.
As the world and future of work changes, we will continue to build on our enviable reputation for a fusion of innovation, creativity and technology; precisely the characteristics that make us and our graduates sought after by global industry. Recent market research confirms that NSW leaders in business, the professions and government believe we have the most industry-focused approach of all Sydney metropolitan universities.
As you navigate around the UTS website, it will become very clear that UTS doesn’t try to do everything, but what it does it excels in, across many academic and professional areas. You will also understand our friendly, collaborative and inclusive culture and our strong commitment to our local and global communities.
The development of the university's distinctive identity can be traced through our history and a timeline of major events.
Welcome to UTS!
