The research industry extends from universities, not-for-profit organisations and government departments to industry bodies and major private enterprises.

Ultimately, you will have the satisfaction of seeing the results of your research being applied in the real world to create better ways of doing and being.

Government/Public Sector

Government departments at all levels of the public sector conduct research into relevant societal, economic and environmental trends.
