Research &


At the Department of Design at UNIST, we conduct academic research to understand and apply design thinking and methods, as well as applied design research and industry projects to leverage design as means to provide competitive advantage for industry and the society.

Our research and design works are undertaken within a lab-based environment, initiated and run by each professor with specific expertise and research/industry interests. Further information on individual labs can be found here.

Each year, the work of our students culminates in a graduation exhibition. Our students autonomously set the annual theme and prepare for their final degree shows. Check out the exhibition themes and posters here.
