Work with real game changers

You'll be taught by researchers and industry practitioners who are leading public conversations about our cities and regions, shaping policy development and transforming Australian and global practices.

Help solve tomorrow's problems

Design is about communicating our ideas and how we interact with our surroundings. By developing the flexible, cross-disciplinary skills employers are increasingly seeking, you'll play a key role in influencing how societies live, communicate and interact.

Be connected to industry

You'll learn and collaborate in studio-based workspaces to fulfill design briefs and build vital industry connections. Through site visits, field trips, and projects you'll develop your visual communication and technology skills, culminating in a public exhibition showcase, designX.
