The Master of Design is a research degree aimed at developing your design expertise and empowering your decision-making.
Specialising in industrial design, fashion design and textile design, communication design, digital design or spatial design, you will work on interdisciplinary projects. Implementing creative research strategies, and continuing to develop expertise in your chosen field, you will contribute to a vibrant, collaborative design culture.
Through this degree you will advance your creative research skills, become ethically responsible and socially aware, and develop an understanding of the implications of working across cultural, social, and industrial contexts.
