To make a positive impact on current and future challenges, we must be ready to pivot rapidly to create solutions. Only through a deeper level of understanding of the theories, tools and technologies available to us can we produce meaningful and high-impact outcomes. The Master of Design builds upon your previous knowledge by enabling advanced inquiry into design methodologies, encouraging independent research projects and access to real-world design issues. You’ll have the chance to work with industry leaders as well as produce an individualised design solution from conception to completion. The goal of the MDes is to enhance your employability. With the critical thought and practice that comes from postgraduate study, you’ll be well positioned to lead projects as a strategist and practitioner. You’ll have a strong working knowledge of current technologies and the ability to adapt to those which emerge. You’ll have a multidisciplinary mindset, able to frame issues from a social and economic standpoint, and be capable of customising and applying your skills to any employer’s needs. With live projects and current industry professionals contributing to your learning, the networks developed in the MDes will leave you well-placed to contribute design solutions locally and globally.
