School of Design

Swinburne's School of Design is a recognised leader in providing high quality, industry-relevant education and research. Our innovative courses are internationally recognised and our graduates are known for their creative leadership.

We offer students the opportunity to develop depth and breadth in their chosen discipline. Our courses encourage specialisation, cross-disciplinary collaboration and international study experiences in preparation for careers likely to involve global teams and projects. A unique way for our students to develop these skills is through Design Factory Melbourne - an interdisciplinary platform for industry engagement working with highly respected international Universities.

Our internationally recognised PhD and Doctor of Design programs provide rich and engaging research training. These programs allow designers to extend their practical and theoretical knowledge of design through investigation into real world design activity, conducted through design practice and project work. Our research is multi-dimensional and inter-disciplinary in nature but with an overarching theme of design practise, innovation and management.
