The University believes that the quality of individual and social life depends on the quality of the mind; thus, it provides students with the opportunity to become more competent in their analytical thought, informed judgment, and effective communication to develop an appreciation for the life of the mind. Graduates from AUT will be well rounded individuals, independent of mind, life-long learners, equipped for success in today’s global, inter-cultural workplace
Since traditional methods of education are no longer compatible with today’s requirements for success in professional life, AUT has adopted the student-centered active learning method of education which includes cooperative, team-based, problem-based and other innovative techniques of learning. This type of learning serves one of the goals stated in the Mission of the University as it promotes such skills as data search and analysis, critical and creative thinking, decision making and team work. AUT graduates who have studied under such methods of learning will not only acquire knowledge but will also work in a way that ensures a continued growth in knowledge and ability to apply what they know in order to gain a successful entry to the third millennium professional world.
