WE PUT PEOPLE BEFORE TECHNOLOGY
Our mission is to support and empower people through the study, invention, development, and dissemination of technologies and processes that solve real-world problems and have positive global impact.
Our goals are as follows:
- Provide multi-disciplinary project-based learning experiences for students
- Create a world-class centre of excellence for human interface technology research
- Develop and transition to industry leading-edge human-computer interfaces to accelerate economic development in New Zealand
How we are accomplishing our goals
The HIT Lab NZ offers PhD and Master’s programmes in Human Interface Technology. With these programmes, we integrate research and education, providing students with a project-based learning environment.
Staff and students can work on their own initiatives or on industry and faculty-driven projects, all of which have the potential to result in real commercial products. At the Lab, students can undertake projects as part of their studies or as an extracurricular activity, such as an internship.
The HIT Lab NZ engages in projects with national and international industrial, academic and governmental partners.
