Health and Wellbeing Pathway - Master of Design

Content cannot be accessed


The award-winning Design for Health & Wellbeing Lab is a collaboration between the Auckland DHB and AUT aimed at improving healthcare experiences with patients, families and staff at Auckland City Hospital. You will learn to customise your approach to health and wellbeing problems through using Human-Centred Design to encourage collaboration, empathy, creativity, and prototyping. The DHWLab works on a project-by project basis, incorporating all design disciplines in the creation of solutions across spaces, environments, communication, services, digital and physical products.

The Lab enables designers to consult on a wide range of projects in fields such as product, graphic and spatial design. Students interested in engaging with the hospital through the lab will have access to the real-world context of healthcare.
