About the Course

The School of Architecture and Urban Design is widely recognised for innovative leadership and contribution to excellence in design research. At RMIT we contend that research is conducted through designing and that the process of designing, as a means of increasing knowledge, parallels research in other areas in fascinating ways. Research candidates are supported and engaged in communities of design practice where learning is fundamentally a social phenomenon; where knowledge is integrated in the life of these communities that share interests, discourses and ways of doing things. The Master of Design may be undertaken in a project or thesis mode. This decision is made in consultation with your supervisor.
