    Governance and management

    UTS profile UTS is the top-ranked young university in Australia (Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2019).

    With an innovative and creative outlook, we provide our students with a career-focused education. Our teaching and learning model is both practice-oriented and research-inspired, and integrates the best of online and face-to-face experiences.

    Students gain real-world experience through UTS’s strong links to industry.

    UTS research spans a range of disciplines, including data sciences, engineering, health, sustainability, social futures, applied economics, robotics, microbiology and quantum computation. UTS researchers provide practical and relevant solutions to issues of national and international importance.

    The social and cultural diversity of the UTS community creates a vibrant and rich place to learn and work. We are based in the heart of Sydney’s creative precinct and close to the city centre.

    UTS strategy The UTS 2027 strategy sets our direction for the next nine years. Our vision — where we want to be by 2027 — is a leading public university of technology recognised for our global impact.

    Our strategy embraces the concept of a ‘lifetime of learning’. We must view the whole workforce, and beyond, as our prospective learner community.

    To do this, we will focus on five major elements:

    • personal learning experiences

    • working in partnership

    • leading innovation and entrepreneurship

    • delivering excellent research with impact

    • a sustainable future.

    Underpinning everything that we do will be our commitment to:

    • social justice and accessibility

    • responsible leadership of technology

    • excellence in Indigenous higher education and research.
