Our research

Our research is often cross-disciplinary, bringing together scientific and creative expertise.

Our strengths include the field of advanced textiles, in which we have a global reputation for designing electronically active, wearable technology.

Our new Global Centre for Heritage Research has its strengths in imaging and sensing, digital heritage, and heritage management.

We are also members of the Midlands 3 Cities Arts and Humanities Doctoral Training Partnership. This means that cultural businesses can benefit from having one of our doctoral students placed with them to work on projects alongside their research.
