AURECON Design Academy on Circular Economy, 24-25 Oct 2022
Established in 2017, Aurecon Design Academy is our accelerator learning program for technical mastery and design excellence. Formalised by RMIT University into a Graduate Certificate in Design Management, Aurecon Design Academy aims to foster eminence and a human-centred, transdisciplinary approach to design problems, enabling us to serve clients through design excellence and innovation. Each year, through a competitive application process, we invite our best and most talented design, engineering and advisory practitioners across our expertise and company locations to join the three-year program as Design Scholars. By participating in a series of intensive face-to-face and virtual educational workshops and study units, they:
- Nurture their passion for great engineering design and consulting
- Improve their ability to think and collaborate in a transdisciplinary environment
- Communicate a shared vision through powerful storytelling
- Elevate their technical mastery
