Design research at ECU concentrates on creating and expanding design knowledge in cross- and trans-disciplinary fields, through philosophical investigation and practice-based/led research. Specific postgraduate research topics are developed in conjunction with the postgraduate coordinator or potential supervisors, however applications are particularly encouraged from those with an interest in:

  • Textual or visual analysis of media representations;
  • social analysis of new media (Internet, digital, computer);
  • identity formation; new communication technologies;
  • mobile culture; audience studies; and media futures.

Researchers in the school are currently involved in projects investigating service design approaches for accessibility, visual communications and impact in health education.

The School also provides access to high-end design and printing facilities.
