In the Taylor's University 2017-2022 Strategic Plan, Research & Enterprise is an important pillar that supports our ambitions of achieving a university having 'Balanced Excellence'. This means growing our Research & Enterprise activities to be competitive with the best universities in the region while maintaining our leadership in teaching excellence and quality student experience. Our outputs should serve the needs of our community and in doing so, improve our reputation and standing in international league tables.
Resulting from this new plan, the previous functions of research management, postgraduate by research programme management and a new unit for knowledge transfer and commercialisation was consolidated under the Department of Research & Enterprise in May 2017, headed by a Pro Vice Chancellor (Research & Enterprise). The mission of this department is to facilitate the growth of research and commercialisation at the university, achieving a MyRA 4 star rating (Malaysian Research Assessment, 1 - 6 star rating scale) and be ranked among the top 100 universities in QS Asia by 2022. While league table positions are important for us, we fundamentally believe that research should serve the needs of the society and thus we will be guided by this philosophy in managing our research, postgraduates by research students and intellectual capital.

Solving problems through a multidisciplinary team
Under this department, the Centre for Higher Degrees by Research (CHDR) manages all postgraduate by research programmes in the university in collaboration with participating Schools. They oversee student admissions, progression and graduation while serving an important link with the Schools in providing pastoral care. The Centre for Research Management (CRM) serves the university community by providing information and services for grant applications, management and tracking of grants, assessment of research performance and overall coordination of university strategic research objectives. The Centre for Knowledge Transfer & Commercialisation (KTC) leverages intellectual capital within the university to generate commercialisable outputs by facilitating intellectual property protection and licensing, linking industry to academia and nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit in academia.
The three centres work in tendem to achieve the following:
