The RMIT Master of Design Innovation and Technology (MDIT) speculates on the future of design and seeks to develop design methodologies that integrate the needs of people with the potentials that lie within technological innovation.

As innovation in contemporary design practice is positioned at the intersection of several disciplines, the studios address issues that span architecture, interior design, industrial design, graphic design, animation, computer science, engineering, media, sound and lighting design.

These research based and industry partnered studios explore different combinations of the following themes

Digital Fabrication - digital design, fabrication and advanced manufacturing

Sustainable Systems – responsive and responsible energy efficient design solutions

Information Environments - connections between data, information, people and space

Interactive Technologies – interactive, autonomous and intelligent object systems

Spatial Sound - sound based explorations across virtual, urban and natural environments

Phenomena and Affect – embodied, sensorial and affective immersive environments
