Where creativity meets technology
In this Section

The School of Art and Design is devoted to creative excellence. To achieve that goal, we provide dedicated spaces for the various disciplines. Our classrooms and labs are designed to accommodate the discipline-specific lab and studio work for each area. Our commitment to excellence means that we regularly update our facilities to ensure state-of-the-art learning spaces for our students.
