Auckland University Of Technology Vice Chancellor

Welcome to Auckland University of Technology – New Zealand’s second largest university.

Vice-Chancellor Derek McCormack is the chief executive and administrative head of the University. The Strategic Leadership Team acts as his advisory group.

29,000 students are enrolled at AUT across our three teaching campuses located in Auckland – New Zealand’s fastest growing city.

AUT has consistently led undergraduate and postgraduate enrolment growth of both New Zealand and international students across the wide range of professional disciplines we teach. We are the third highest ranked university in New Zealand and retain the top position in the country for international outlook. 

AUT students are provided with a unique learning experience through engagement with industry, business and international partners, the ongoing development of modern teaching and learning facilities, and a focus on research that addresses issues facing the environment and society. We have the highest citation impact score of all universities in New Zealand.

Students are encouraged to participate, develop their own opinions, gain knowledge and learn how to apply it in real situations. We produce great graduates who enter the workforce able to challenge routine thinking and provide innovative solutions to industry.

I look forward to welcoming you to the University.
