AHRC Doctoral Training Centre Design Star
The Design Star CDT brings together leading design departments at the University of Brighton; Goldsmiths, University of London; Loughborough University; The Open University; and the University of Reading.
It aims to develop future intellectual leadership in design: research leaders of the future who are equipped to make a difference to contemporary social concerns, knowledge production and creative practices. This requires an approach to research training that places diversity and interdisciplinary at its core.
Design Star brings together world-class research in:
- design for industry
- interaction design
- design process
- communication design
- sustainable design
- design history
- creative practice.
The spread of design disciplines is linked by a common approach to design that encourages the integration of history, theory and engagement.
