At UNSW Canberra, we’re committed to transforming world-class research into innovations that improve lives and tackle some of the greatest challenges facing society today.
The Professional Doctorate program combines doctoral research and coursework components with professional practice and is designed to meet the needs of industry and professional groups. Through workplace-based projects, you will generate and analyse evidence to address real-world problems and produce a thesis that reflects applied investigation, problem-solving, and original research.
This degree is multi-disciplinary and linked to the fulfilment of self-directed career development and life-long, personalised learning. You'll collaborate with industry, government, and community partners to find innovative solutions that benefit business and community at a local, national, and global level.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and superior partnerships, together with the strength of our research focused community create exceptional career development opportunities for higher degree research (HDR) students by developing the capacity of individuals to lead the development of knowledge in their professional contexts.
