Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to an era of unprecedented change – one built on challenges that are more complex than ever before. In the UTS Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation (FTDi), we’re focused on producing graduates who can deliver creative, entrepreneurial and highly collaborative solutions.
Our courses are about building expertise that’s unhindered by traditional discipline boundaries. We have a vision to advance learning beyond professional silos, to push boundaries and to explore the role of transdisciplinarity in creating new solutions for a future world.
To do this, we offer a unique style of learning that emphasises collaboration across
disciplines. It’s based on extensive research into the future economy, and shaped by the input of our industry partners, who play an active role in developing our courses.
It’s also informed by the calibre of our students, whose entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to innovation is matched only by their determination to succeed.
As we move into a new world of work, there is a pressing demand for professionals who can take a transdisciplinary approach to solving problems, creating solutions, and identifying opportunities that would otherwise go untapped.
This is where you come in. As a student in the FTDi, you have the chance to become an architect of your own future, to use uncertainty to envision and enact change, and to sink your teeth into the complexity and undefined challenges that will frame the future world of work.
UTS is leading the way in producing the next generation of remarkable people to lead what
we believe is the new industrial revolution. Join us, and see where a FTDi degree can
