THUAS has two core functions: providing education and conducting practice oriented research. Our research contributes to improving and innovating our education, professional practice and society as a whole. The professors, lecturer-researchers and students conduct research in collaboration with national and international partners. We are building seven Centres of Expertise, each with their own theme.
