As a respected research institution the university is leading the new wave of thought through a multi-disciplinary approach to practical solutions that will make a real difference,from exploring the impact of early childhood development to the exciting spaceof artificial intelligence, process automation and smart cities; to developing nanotechnology capable of removing pollutants from water. We are investigating the sustainability of global resources through earth sciences, looking at our past to learn about our future.
