Over one semester, students work in small transdisciplinary teams (up to 6 students with differing core degrees) to collaboratively develop ideas and strategies that tackle the complex challenges brought to us by partners, in three project phases.
PHASE 1: EXPLORATION & GENERATION
Understanding the challenge presented and exploring the problem space. During this phase, teams will work towards reframing the challenge and brief.
PHASE 2: REFRAMING & ADAPTION
Checking in with Industry Partner and teaching staff. Students present a reframed brief to the partner for feedback and together they agree on a plan for the realisation of the project.
PHASE 3: REALISATION & REFINEMENT
Experimenting, adapting and analysing through iterative cycles. This final phase sees students work toward proof of concept and present their solution to their Industry Partner, peers and UTS in a final presentation session.
You may have a project that’s ripe for collaborative thinking or intense research, an unexplored opportunity or challenge, an idea that needs its commercial benefit explored, or a plan to transform the innovative capacity of your staff. Whatever it is – you have the chance to have your complex challenge or incredible opportunity explored by a group of engaged and talented students.
