Research at Ara

Research enhances teaching and learning at Ara and strengthens our connections with industry and the community.

At Ara, our research vision is:

“Creative, applied research that inspires teaching and learning and responds to community and industry needs.”

Spanning many of our academic departments, our research helps to inform the vocational teaching at Ara, which ensures that students and learning are at the heart of what we do.

Our leading-edge projects contribute to developments and new ways of thinking in a variety of industries, both locally and internationally. Many projects involve international collaborations, while others seek to further knowledge in areas closer to home by directly working with local industries and communities.
