AIT is the leader in the Institute of Technology sector in innovation, applied teaching and student welfare.

The Institute is home to 6,000 students undertaking a broad range of programmes in the domains of business, hospitality, engineering, informatics, science, health, social science and design. More than 11% of the full-time student population come from overseas with 65 nationalities represented, reflecting the globalised nature of its campus. The Institute’s global focus is also evident in the 230 partnerships and agreements it has signed with universities and research institutions around the world.
