Research and innovation at TUT is driven by a strategy of gearing research towards institutionally approved Niche Areas and CITSIs, which promote innovative research for the economic development of the country and also enjoy international recognition. In line with this, TUT focuses its research resources (people, infrastructure and funding) into carefully selected R&I areas. This will promote accelerated development of research and innovation and advance the realisation of TUT’s goal to become a fully recognized research institution able to participate in the National System of Innovation and Internationally.

Our objectives are to:

    • Manage and promote research and innovation at the university within carefully selected research areas (SARChIs and Industrial Chairs);
    • Ensure the development of individual researchers at all levels; and
    • Facilitate support to postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows
    • Coordinate the collection, evaluation and submission of research output to the Department of Higher - Education and Training
    • Facilitate support for researchers to earn external research income for the university

  • The approved journal lists for 2017
