Research for Architecture and Built Environment (Urban Ecologies)

The School of Architecture and Built Environment has 28 academic staff members and operates an interdisciplinary research program serving the needs of the built environment professions. Staff are active researchers and have been successful in securing research funded projects including a range of nationally competitive funded research grants, government agency funded research, CRC funded projects and various industry consultancy based research projects. Deakin Urban Ecologies (DUE) is the umbrella group for the research programs in the school which investigate the symbiotic relationships between the complex adaptive natural, virtual, human and built environments in response to local, and global contexts. The aim is to create a knowledge centre for the development and management of economic, social and environmentally sustainable environments for a productive, innovative and competitive Australian property and construction industry. DUE is understood through the research themes listed below.
