UTS Design, Architecture and Building has a cohort of over 100 research students, studying across all of our core disciplines. Whether completing a doctorate or a masters, they form a vibrant research culture, centred on events, seminars and our dedicated HDR student facilities. This community is also supportive: expect to see your peers when you present an assessment or seminar on campus.
We’d like you to meet a few of our students: they’ll tell you about their research topics, why they chose to come here and what they think about studying at UTS.
