The Master of Design course is designed for students from a range of design backgrounds and related fields. Our units include those that focus on design research through to practical units with design outcomes. One unit, Inclusive and Participatory Design, combines research and design practice, with our exit-level Integrative Capstone units extending this research/practice connection over two semesters. Knowledge of research principles and methods that apply to professional practice inform a student’s approach throughout the course.
Studying at Swinburne has provided me with the confidence I needed to dive into the professional world. During my course, I had the chance to learn from great professionals and work with real clients – which even generated work opportunities outside of class.
