Centre for Design and Creative Industries (CDCI)

Research at the School of Jewellery is carried out through the Centre for Design and Creative Industries, a well-established, interdisciplinary research centre that encompasses a broad range of creative design practices, innovation and external engagement.

Although the CDCI carries out work within the traditional design groupings of architecture, fashion and textiles, jewellery, product design and visual communication, the combination of cognate disciplines it brings together also gives opportunities to build genuinely interdisciplinary design research and respond to cross-disciplinary research themes and challenges.
