Research and Innovation
The St. Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT) is committed to promoting research and innovative activities that can lead to better understanding and solving the challenges facing Tanzania, the African Continent and the World. Research and innovation therefore, constitutes one of the core functions of this university. It is for this reason that the university has set aside the office of the Directorate of Postgraduate Studies, Research and Consultancy. The office is responsible for promoting and coordinating research which are carried out by individuals, teams, departments and faculties. The directorate is also responsible of organizing short courses which may be offered on a regular basis depending on the demands or needs of the clients. In addition to coordinating research, the office coordinates consultancy which is normally provided to a variety of organizations that can benefit from the University expertise at their request. The purpose of consultancy is to make SAUT’s expertise available to individuals and groups/organizations that are not automatically beneficiaries of SAUT. In this way, the university serves the needs of business, educational institutions, non-government organizations and individual persons in the civic community.
