We are 3,000 students, five departments and one school. We stand halfway between science and the arts; between tradition and disruption. We embrace theoretical rigour, and insist on hands-on experience for all our students. We celebrate design heritage, and we invite innovation.
We’re a nationally renowned stage for talent in making and design. We investigate the physicality of tools and tech, glass and grass, bricks and mortar; we explore the abstract excitement of ideas and creative philosophies.
