Strengths and clusters
The Faculty is home to four research centres:
- Applied Research in the Built Environment

- Designing Out Crime Research Centre
- Design Innovation Research Centre
The Australian Research Council’s Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2012 National Report assessing research quality within Australia's higher education providers ranks the Faculty’s research as being at world standard (FoR 12 Built Environment and Design).
Research supervised within the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building extends across theoretical and practice-based investigations, historical contextualisations and interdisciplinary approaches.
Higher Degrees offered through the Faculty afford sustained engagement with the many issues that arise in relation to the creation, production, management and understanding of design and its role in our complex world.
We work closely with government, industry bodies, communities and other institutions across our three core disciplines. These projects range from design history research to cutting-edge building technology collaborations with the construction industry.
