Research collaboration

Melbourne School of Design collaborates with commercial, government and not-for-profit organisations to develop mutually beneficial partnerships and solve complex challenges in the built environment.

Our academics can work with your organisation to explore fundamental research questions as well as devising solutions for specific problems. Using the role of design thinking and connection with the built environment, we are uniquely placed to facilitate interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary projects. Our academics lead partnerships that connect with industry and government, bringing together disciplines as diverse as health, education, engineering and cultural programs.

  • Architecture
  • Architectural engineering
  • Urban design
  • Urban planning
  • Construction Management
  • Property
  • Landscape Architecture and
  • Architectural/urban heritage
