Transdisciplinary Innovation

An Australian first, the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation (FTDi) offers degrees that encompass critical and creative thinking, problem solving, data and digital technologies, invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. Transdisciplinary practices are characterised by learning or research that transgresses disciplinary practice, and creates new synergies with participants from different disciplines, collaborating to generate innovative and novel approaches to complex applied problems. 

Designed for radical and curious thinkers, the FTDi degrees are a direct response to industry demand for graduates working at the intersection of technology, creativity and innovation. Courses are based on extensive research into the economy of the future and consultation with industry, ensuring that students gain the adaptability, resilience and entrepreneurial spirit they need to thrive in their future careers. Students will benefit from collaborative learning and will have the opportunity to engage with real world client briefs and live projects. Students will also complete an internship as a component of both the BCII and BTI degrees.
