Niche Areas (NAs)

The Research and Innovation at TUT is driven by a strategy of gearing research towards institutionally-approved niche areas, which promote innovative research for the economic development of the country and also enjoy international recognition. An R&I Niche Area (NA) has a well-defined research theme and should move through a development trajectory and strive to develop up to the stage where they are regarded as TUT centres. 

Active TUT R&I Niche Areas at different stages of development.
