The QUT Design Lab was founded in 2016 to employ bold, fresh, and rigorous design-led research. From smart cities and design robotics to sustainable fashion and food, the QUT Design Lab researchers are tackling key challenges facing society, industry, community, and the environment.

Our mission is ‘Change by Design’, focused around three core programs:

    • Designing Future Technologies
    • Designing for Health
    • Designing Creative and Resilient Communities

Our research is theoretically grounded, strongly applied in practice, and transdisciplinary. We welcome industry, government and community organisations interested in collaborating with us to get in touch with us. We also welcome inquiries from prospective applicants interested in studying with us for an MPhil and PhD degree.
