These are our spaces.
We encourage our students and staff to come together and bring their ideas to life in our innovative spaces.
Research today is as much about the presentation as the substance, and it often takes skilled computer technicians to produce the high-quality data and visual renderings investors have come to expect.
Visualisation Service experts in the Centre for eResearch, located in the Faculty of Science, are on hand to help students generate high-quality research and present their findings in a way that holds greater impact.
A large visualisation data facility known as the Visualisation Suite, gives research students access to a full 4K tiled-wall display, 3D TV, 3D monitor, as well as AR and VR capabilities, to help bring their innovations and Masters or PhD research to life. Recent projects have included developing a 3D map depicting humpback whale migration, a VR molecule viewer and a neural network that was trained in facial recognition of the university’s entire staff directory.
The Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s vibrant, collaborative space is designed to spark and develop the brilliant ideas of students from all faculties across the University of Auckland.
It’s a place to create, experiment and cross-pollinate. With everything from 3D printers, to laser cutters, sewing machines, routers and vacuum formers to build prototypes, lounges for brainstorming, and meeting rooms for big investor pitches, the Unleash Space is all about making great things happen. It is where students and staff come to ideate, work on their innovation projects, create what they can imagine in the maker space and launch their ventures.
The space also hosts regular events and programmes to inspire innovation, help students launch their ventures, and ensure they realise their potential.
The Unleash Space was founded in partnership between the Business School and the Faculty of Engineering.
