About

The Doctor of Philosophy (Practice-based) at the University of New South Wales is aimed at practitioners operating within or across the broad range of disciplines represented in the faculty, from architecture and design to planning and construction.

Overview

A Practice-based PhD is available across all disciplines represented in the Faculty of Built Environment: Architecture, City Planning, Computational Design, Construction Management and Property, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

The programme

In the same way as a traditional PhD, the primary aim of the Doctor of Philosophy (Practice-based) at the University of New South Wales is to contribute new knowledge to the field through systematic investigation. A candidate has the opportunity to apply the research value of the knowledge, skills and methodologies developed as a practitioner within a broader framework of critical enquiry and analysis. 

It is expected that the candidate will generate a new body of ideas-based/creative work (the Project) and a written work (the Dissertation) that together will make an original contribution to knowledge within the field.

Programme Structure

  • The Project may take one of a number of different forms, for example: architectural design, urban design and planning, construction methods and technologies, industrial design, interior design and landscape design. It could also cross a number of disciplines. 
  • The chosen medium can also vary, for example it might take the form of objects, drawings, plans, prototypes, models, creative text, digital fabrication, film, virtual reality or a combination of these.
