Now more than ever, universities have a crucial role in nurturing the critical thinkers and entrepreneurial future-makers who may one day save the planet. The College of Sciences fosters creativity, inspiring scientists and engineers for innovation in today's knowledge economy.

Since Sir Geoffrey Peren crossed a Romney sheep with a Cheviot to create the Perendale in 1956, Massey has led innovation in science and agriculture. Massey is home to leading researchers across the science spectrum, from veterinary science and agriculture to food technology, sports science, engineering, and the fundamental sciences that underpin all research.

Primary food production is the driving force of New Zealand’s economy, and Massey is focusing its research on finding better ways to produce foods that add value and boost exports, while maintaining the environment.

The Centre for Precision Agriculture, headed by Associate Professor Ian Yule, is at the cutting edge of research into pasture management and fertiliser distribution.

Researchers at the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health have developed a food printer that produces a basic food product that can be infused with any colour or flavour and injected with nutritional components. Creative solutions like this could play a vital role in helping to address the world food shortage.

From the development of the helix cluster, a unique energy-saving supercomputer, to pioneering research into cortical brain simulation with Auckland City Hospital, Massey scientists are engaged in projects that matter in the real world.
