Advance Magazine Summer Issue 2017 Cover

This Summer 2017 issue focuses on student-integrated research. It highlights staff members who are mentoring and working alongside dedicated students to co-research, present and publish work on topical issues.

Across a wide range of disciplines, Unitec staff and students are teaming up with industry to improve New Zealand’s wellbeing and prosperity. In this issue, you’ll find research about tackling New Zealand’s biosecurity risk, reducing nitrogen pollution in waterways, and pioneering a new method of asbestos disposal. In the computing lab, others are developing an affordable cybersecurity solution that could revolutionise disaster recovery for Kiwi businesses.

Although publishing and presenting research is a goal worth striving for, research isn’t just about the final conclusions drawn. With student-integrated, facilitative learning, staff learn how to become better teachers, and students gain valuable skills, industry connections and better job prospects. From architecture and coding, to converting a tuk-tuk into an electric vehicle, there are plenty of examples of staff and student success in the latest issue of Advance.
