At Massey University, we do far more than educate the next generation of New Zealand's professionals, academics and researchers. Massey also makes contributions to the nation, and the wider world, through its initiatives in creativity, innovation, sustainability, and commercialisation. More than just an institution of higher learning, Massey University is dedicated to being an engine of positive change for the new New Zealand.
As New Zealand’s defining university, it’s our job at Massey to produce the next generation of creative thinkers. The challenges we face today are different from those we faced even 10 years ago, and the way we equip our young people needs to change radically to keep up.
The ultimate challenge for a university is to translate, distribute and exploit the new knowledge its academics continually create. Massey staff and students embrace the “innovation cycle”—creating new ideas, then partnering with entrepreneurs and stakeholders in industry and government to transform these ideas into solutions.
Massey is commited to developing applied, real world opportunities for sustainability-related teaching and research. Researchers at Massey University form partnerships with local councils, central government, crown research institutes and private companies in order to carry out research projects.
Massey Enterprise incorporates a range of initiatives, including the exclusive responsibility for commercialising intellectual property from research and discovery within the University, commercial ventures, and training programmes. It also provides a point of entry to the University for companies wishing to access the skills, capability and technologies within the University.
