Design research submissions


Research students in Design have the choice of the Master of Design or the Master of Design Enterprise to extend their research-led design practice. We leverage extensive professional networks and industry connections, working with local and international institutions to provide real world opportunities for our postgraduate students to work with industry and community partners on live team projects. Students are also welcome to develop your own practice-based research project that might meet a need, seize a market opportunity, or provide a challenge to how things are now.
