Programmes of Study

 

CITRENZ PROGRAMMES

The CITRENZ programmes  have been developed by CITRENZ on behalf of its members in 2015 for the first possible teaching in 2016.

Note that we are continuing to work with NZQA to resolve the issue of ownership and accreditation of the programmes.  NZQA’s current position is that it is not prepared to work with any form of collaborative organisation as programme developers.  Otago Polytechnic’s CEO Phil Ker has agreed to take this matter to the NZQA board (which he is on) to seek a resolution. We will update you on this as soon as we have any information.

The CITRUS Centre for IT Research

 

The CITRUS Centre for IT Research ( www.citrus.ac.nz ) is a national centre for applied information and communications technology (ICT) research. The national centre and first research hub is to be based at Unitec New Zealand Waitakere, to be followed by a second research hub at Otago Polytechnic and supporting a national virtual network of researchers. CITRUS intends to make a significant contribution to New Zealand’s economic and social well-being through the successful transfer of knowledge and applied research in the field of ICT. CITRUS is about building New Zealand’s ICT capability, that involves business and the community in applied research that will successfully sustain New Zealand’s economic growth. It will provide applied research opportunities for community and business (particularly SMEs) in Waitakere City and throughout New Zealand through student projects and a network of emerging and experienced researchers. Waitakere City offers significant synergies for the CITRUS project, including the personal support of Mayor Bob Harvey, relationships with business development agencies and business incubation facilities and a recognition that CITRUS will directly contribute to the city’s technology vision.

The CITRUS vision is one of applied ICT research adding real value to regional economies and communities and is based on a model of innovation in applied research leading to commercialisation. The Centre will be operated by Unitec New Zealand’s School of Computing and IT and Otago Polytechnic as lead partners on behalf of the Computing & Information Technology Research & Education New Zealand
(CITRENZ). CITRENZ members are the information and computing technology schools in all the New Zealand Polytechnics, Massey University Wellington and AUT. The proposal for a national centre is endorsed by the Association of Polytechnics of New Zealand (APNZ) and enjoys the support of Waitakere City Council.

CITRUS introduces a national collaborative framework that will provide mentorship, networking and support to ensure that polytechnic-based research in ICT is focused and reaching its full potential in the same way that the CITRENZ has brought together academic development, staff development and collaboration over the last 14 years. The dynamic field of ICT research means that intellectual property issues pose difficulties for many researchers who lack the commercial experience and resources, CITRUS will as part of its mandate develop policies and expertise in the effective management of intellectual property and will actively work with local research clusters to promote the best results for stakeholders. This leads directly to a significant role of CITRUS, which is to facilitate the incubation and commercialisation of research projects. With CITRUS acting as
a co-ordinated national centre, regionally-based and inter-institutional research clusters can be created, managed and resourced so that CITRUS:

  • Builds a community of ICT researchers (across-the-board)
  • Increases financial support for research activities (targeted)
  • Increases the critical mass of new researchers (new directions)
  • Develops and supports research centres and clusters (seeks excellence)
  • Develops formal research linkages with other institutions (outreach)
  • Leverages localised partnerships with industry, community and iwi (inclusive)

For further information contact:Sam Mann .

Publications

RS see the provision of a suite of vehicles for publication and discourse as a major role for the group. We have put considerable effort into reviewing the research support role of CITRENZ. One outcome of this a recognition that we have a series of publications, each of which meets a different need:

New Zealand Journal of Applied Computing and Information Technology Fully refereed journal with the aim of publishing articles, which report applications, development and research in the area of Computing and Information Technology. Published articles have New Zealand authors and/or content that relates to New Zealand. The Journal is published twice a year.

Proceedings of the CITRENZ Conference

Conference proceedings serves dual role of promoting excellence in IT research and teaching, and supporting a developing research culture. Has three themes: computing education, computing research and computing practice. Has three levels of publication, fully refereed papers, reviewed papers and poster papers. The conference proceedings are a substantial document of around 500 pages

Bulletin of Information Technology Research

This has been discontinued. An archive of previous editions is maintained on this site.


Conferences

Each year CITRENZ holds an annual conference, the first of which was held in Wellington in 1988. Subsequent conferences have been held in various locations including Rotorua, Christchurch, Wanganui, New Plymouth, Nelson, Auckland, Dunedin, Napier, Hamilton, and Palmerston North, Christchurch, Tauranga, and Wellington.

The conference delegates are predominantly computing and information technology lecturers and industry representatives from throughout New Zealand. The 2013 conference will be held in Hamilton and we expect to have 170 delegates with an increasing participation from the international community. The 2014 Conference will be held in Wellington.

The conference delegates are predominantly computing and information technology lecturers and industry representatives from throughout New Zealand. The 2013 conference was held in Hamilton.
