FOR EXAMPLE, MR SPEAKER, IN 1994 RESEARCH FUNDING TOTALLED IN THE VICINITY OF $3.9 MILLION DOLLARS, AND IN 1995 $4.3 MILLION DOLLARS. A FURTHER INDICATOR OF THE SUCCESS OF THE NTU IN RESEARCH IS THE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS ENROLLED. THIS FIGURE HAS GROWN STEADILY, AND IN 1996 THERE WERE 799 ENROLMENTS IN POSTGRADUATE COURSES, BOTH BY COURSEWORK AND RESEARCH. INDICATIONS ARE THAT ENROLMENTS WILL INCREASE AGAIN IN 1997. I AM PLEASED TO SAY, MR SPEAKER, THAT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AT THE UNIVERSITY ARE NOT UNDERTAKEN IN ISOLATION FROM COMMUNITY NEEDS. 21
