At the School of Design, more than half of our students go on to pursue a master’s degree. Many other students find positions at private companies and government agencies. Each course prepares students for work in different industries, and many of them create careers where they make use of what they studied at university.
Many students who obtain a master's degree go on to pursue careers in the private sector or in government, where they can make direct use of the expertise they acquired in their graduate studies.
Students wanting to acquire an even higher level of expertise go on to pursue a doctoral program and pursue careers as cutting-edge researchers, designers, creators, and artists.
