Deakin’s Digital Design and Engineering Centre (3DEC) combines design and engineering innovation with cutting-edge digital fabrication and sensor technology expertise. This collaboration is based on three core values:
- Integrating multi-disciplinary ingenuity
- People-centred solutions
- Improving social, economic and environmental outcomes through digital technology innovations
3DEC applies these principals to key challenges facing Australia today: digital transformation in health and society, digital disruption in manufacturing and digital innovation in infrastructure.
Led by world-class researchers and powered by state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, our labs span a broad range of emerging areas, from cyber-human-physical systems and 4D printing, to metal additive manufacturing and particle engineering.
