Highlights

Increasingly, design intersects with diverse fields such as bioengineering, artificial intelligence, systems modelling, smart cities, health, sports and exercise science, and cancer prevention. This exciting transformation is driving the emergence of new design careers. QUT offers the widest range of design disciplines, and the most options for double degrees, in Australia.

Flexible course options

In the Bachelor of Design you will choose one of seven first majors.  You then have flexibility to study a range of minors an either additional specialisation units or electives.  

If you want to travel overseas, immerse yourself in a different culture and be on pace with the design trends emerging in another country, the Bachelor of Design - International may be for you. This degree combines the three-year Bachelor of Design with one year of international studies, giving you all of the outcomes of the standard degree including your choice of majors, plus the advantages of a flexible year of international studies.

What you’ll study

Your Bachelor of Design will begin with Design Impact Labs where you will begin to conceptualise and negotiate how you, as a designer, can address the challenges that demand multi-faceted solutions and responses to diverse situational stakeholders and/or social agendas. Through collaboration with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues, identifying potential solutions connected to industry and community stakeholders. The labs are a great way to engage with your fellow students.

Options include combining architecture with business, engineering, property economics or construction management; fashion with business; industrial design with business, engineering or law; or interaction design with business, engineering or IT.
