Auckland University of Technology (AUT) (Te Wānanga Aronui o Tāmaki Makau Rau) is a university in New Zealand, formed on 1 January 2000 when a former technical college (originally established in 1895) was granted university status. It has five faculties across three campuses in Auckland: City, North, and South campuses, and an additional three specialist locations: AUT Millennium, Warkworth Radio Astronomical Observatory and AUT Centre for Refugee Education.[1]

AUT enrolled more than 29,000 students in 2018,[2][3]including 4,194 international students from 94 countries and 2,417 postgraduate students. AUT's student population is diverse with a range of ethnic backgrounds including New Zealand European, Asian, Maori and Pasifika. Students also represent a wide age range with 22% being aged 25–39 years and 10% being 40 or older.

AUT employed 2,474 full-time equivalent (FTE) staff in 2016, including both professional and academic. Data suggests that 86% of AUT's graduates are employed full-time within nine months of graduating. In the 2019 World University Rankings, AUT was ranked as 301–350.[4]
