Behind every success story sits a great mentor. At UTS, those mentors are our amazing academics, from senior professors through to studio leaders. We choose our academics for many reasons. They are invariably at the top of their game, whatever their area of expertise. But they're also passionate about what they do and committed to nurturing their talented students (that's you).
UTS Design’s studio culture means that our studio leaders develop challenging, real-world projects for you to work on. It might be a prototype mobile health clinic or self-directed project in your Honours year.
Prototyping new spaces in interior architecture
Studio leader Monika Proepper in the Bachelor of Design in Interior Architecture (formerly Interior & Spatial Design) challenged students with a unique project: build a prototype for a community engagement space for the Asylum Seekers Centre in Newtown. The twist? It's a bus, designed to service clients across Sydney.
A year preparing for industry
Visual Communication graduate Gabriella Clegg wanted to hone her skills before she went out into industry. Under the expert guidance of Visual Communication Honours Studio leader Aaron Seymour, Gabriella developed The Object Library – an experience driven platform, designed to link you and your underutilised goods with the community. Meet Gabriella.
