Brunel University

West London

Course Convener: Paul Verity Smith 


This is a distinctive and unique interdisciplinary program focused on industry 
graduate needs, and involves collaboration between the School of Arts and the 
School of Engineering and Design. It centers on the integration of creative 
arts with science and technology to develop students' skills to advanced levels 
and to equip them with the expertise to contribute to, as well as respond to,

industries. Drawing on significant academic, creative and technological 
strengths from both Schools, the program's high degree of currency and

Birringer, Stelarc, Sue Broadhurst, Gretchen Schiller, Paul Verity Smith, and 
Kjell Petersen.

the development of new modes of cultural and artistic practices. The program 
incorporates development of business, production and entrepreneurial skills, 
recognizing the demands for multi-skilled and collaborative approaches in the
