We aim to prepare graduates for the careers of the future. We do this by harnessing emerging technologies to facilitate borderless, personalised education and by conducting research that informs our teaching programs and impacts the communities we serve.
We're committed to extending the boundaries of science, technology and design through close relationships with professional associations, other education providers, industry and government across Australia and internationally.
We actively foster partnerships with relevant organisations, like-minded universities and our alumni. This engagement helps to improve our graduate outcomes and globally relevant research.

|Architecture, engineering and digital technology - that's a good IDeEA!|
|21 November 2016|
|What do kinetic facades, carbon fibre, data visualisation and serious games all have in common? They are all current projects in Deakin University’s Interdisciplinary Design environments for Engineering and Architecture laboratory – the IDeEA lab.|
Our vision is to do research that broadens our impact and is focussed on issues that affect our surrounding environment. The kind of research that recognises the challenges society faces right now and finds innovative ways to progressively deal with it and truly build tomorrow.
We’re proud of the contribution that our research can – and does – make to people’s lives, on a local, national and international level.
What we learn through research also strengthens the quality of the teaching and learning experiences our students enjoy.
