PhD Research

The Centre’s research efforts tend to fall in two main areas: 1. Engaging communities to generate behaviour change, and reduce waste and resource and energy use, and 2. Material and design interventions, including the use of technical assessments and evaluative tools, to reduce material flows and waste, and create more sustainable cities.

We supervise higher degree research activities and supports postgraduate students working in either of these priority areas. If you are interested in undertaking a PhD we invite you to get in touch.

Master of Sustainable Design

The sb+b Centre is also closely involved in teaching a Master of Sustainable Design for qualified graduate designers. This is an entry point for designers who want to specialize in sustainable design or want to go on to do a PhD in the Centre, or with our partner research centres and institutes.
