Transdisciplinary practices are characterised by learning or researching that transgresses disciplinary practice and creates new synergies, with participants from different disciplines collaborating to generate innovative and novel approaches to complex applied problems.
In transdisciplinary projects, learners and researchers integrate data, information, tools, techniques, perspectives, concepts and/or theories from two or more disciplines to tackle socially relevant problems collaboratively with other stakeholders (real or simulated) in their context.
UTS has had strong feedback from industry that the graduate attributes of UTS transdisciplinary courses align with a range of existing and emerging roles. These roles require the unique combination of digital literacy, problem-solving skills and creativity. They complement discipline-based roles that provide greater depth in specific area.
