Description

The Centre for Design Innovation (CDI) provides access to a strong client-focused research capability that responds to increasing market and community demand for strategic and transformative design and development.

CDI builds upon existing research strengths at Swinburne University of Technology: linking researchers with industries and communities to enable human scale, user focused, design led innovation. This approach fosters the opportunity for deep and effective design innovation research, enabling postgraduates to transform often deviously complex problems into valued design innovations that have commercial and humanitarian benefits.
