Course info

Summary

A design research degree offers you the opportunity and time to explore innovative research practice through original, critical works. You’ll have the choice to work on your own design, or with staff on international and external projects in collaborative research in our ongoing practice-based projects.

You’ll make research connections that allow you to explore new concepts and meanings in design. For doctoral study, there’s a key need for design to offer experimentation within environmental, social and sustainable futures in the subject and your discipline.

We understand your research may change as you make new connections and as relevant modes of thought and action become important to you through the course of your research. We’ll work with you as you find the appropriate practice for pursuing your research and related form for consolidating and disseminating your findings.

Research areas

You’ll be supported by staff whose specialisms include:

  • sustainable technology
  • the relationship between music and landscape
  • alternative methods of representation
  • augmented aurality and digital tools for sound representation
  • biophilic design for improving health and wellbeing
  • digital and traditional
  • the theory and practice of illustration in advertising and design
  • representational drawing and painting techniques
  • the atelier system
  • colour theory.
