Our core programs: Advanced Product Design and Development

Industry Engagement
Impact Focused

The Advanced Product Design and Development team has created a cross-cutting approach to research that has fast-tracked its ascendancy as one of the most accomplished and heralded design-focused research teams in Australia. Utilising a wealth of experience in industrial design and product design engineering, the team works with a range of industry and government clients in order to innovate new ideas that can improve and refine the way organisations expand into new markets.

Adeptly led by Professor Blair Kuys, the Advanced Product Design and Development team has worked tirelessly to build a strong local and international reputation as one of the premier dynamic design research teams in Australia, lending their hand to a number of high-profile projects that have reaped impressive outcomes both for their associated industry and the CDI.

Comprised of a team with a range of specialties that interweave perfectly, the Advanced Product Design and Development team has an impressive resume’ that has worked to develop partnerships between the CDI and outside enterprise. The Advanced Product Design lab is one of the most technologically innovative spaces in Australia, expertly managed by Mr Nathan Loutit, who works closely with other core program leaders within the CDI to create ingenious concepts that can be realised and marketed appropriately.
