Overview

Key Facts

The world is changing rapidly, and the pace of innovation and digital disruption is accelerating. Despite this, many of the social, cultural, political and professional structures that support our communities have remained static and unchallenged for generations. Our education, healthcare and primary production systems, our workplaces and our products need to keep up. We need design leaders, design strategists and design thinkers to dismantle these structures, and to dissect and solve some of our most complex problems.  

Whether it’s rethinking the way remote communities access healthcare, creating a less risk-averse corporate culture, or developing a more individualised education system, our world needs more innovative thinkers and communicators; people with the knowledge and skills to design our future

This Design Futures course at RMIT University will equip you to be a design leader by:

  • Extending your practice in strategic, communication and service design
  • Framing this new practice in the context of designing social, cultural and economic futures
  • Introducing you to a close-knit global network of design professionals and different orders of design problems
  • Helping you to identify and articulate contributions you make to organisations, as well as the value that design brings to business, government and society.
