Professor George Benwell, Head of the Department of Information Science, says MLL is expected to grow in the next few years to a turnover of several million dollars. It will retain links established previously with Telecom, Vodafone, Lucent and other major information and communications technology (ICT) corporates in Wellington, Auckland and overseas.
There will also continue to be a close association with other universities and service providers.
"I believe it will be a major boost to the department's research efforts and should help us to grow," says Professor Benwell. And it needs to grow not only through research but also by increasing student numbers.
Professor Benwell says forecasts indicate there will be 125,000 New Zealand ICT jobs in seven years compared with current levels of about 41,000.
