Technology has always underpinned and informed creativity. At the School of Creative Technologies, our goal is to challenge and disrupt the way people relate to and communicate with each other through creative practice and the development of innovative technologies.

Our research is focused on collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects that improve our quality of life and rethink how we interact with each other and our environment. We deliver outstanding research in VR and its applications to healthcare, computer games, and visual computing in image analysis and big data representation.
