Design and Innovation provides students with the opportunity to learn about design, sustainable community development, team work and communication whilst contributing towards real international development projects. Students work in multidisciplinary teams to design solutions for projects ranging from water supply and quality to sanitation, health and education programs, and other infrastructure developments. Developing creative solutions and building prototypes is a major focus in this unit. The other component, academic literacy skills, is approached in the context of researching and communicating about the design project.
