Open Days

Join us for our next Open Day.


Our multi-million pound investment in equipment, studios and support has helped drive innovation across all sectors of the business community.

We offer a range of facilities to support businesses, including the latest CAD/CAM technology, testing facilities and room hire for conferences, exhibitions and business showcasing.

You can benefit from some of the following facilities:


This state-of-the-art facility enables special effects through its ability to synchronise with Computer Generated Imagery (CGI). The facility is used by animation, photography and moving image creators and is available for commercial use. The equipment and studio, with student support, was used by local firm Quench Design to film the title sequence for Channel 4’s ‘How to Look Good Naked’.

For more information please contact Matt Cusworth on 0121 331 5800.

Haptics Facility

Based in User-lab, this is a unique research and development lab focused on the touch aspects of User Centred Design, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Haptics. The facility is aimed primarily at research into creative and design processes and the study of enactive learning technologies - those that stimulate 'learning by doing' via touch and other 'natural' activities. This fully equipped suite of haptic workstations is available for hire by artists, designers and others.
