Centre for Creative Industries

The combination of staff across the various sectors in the School Engineering, Science and Design provides a unique depth and understanding of creativity and technical development in the industrial and commercial sectors.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships have been struck with industry to investigate the incorporation of design and materials knowledge from within the School into manufacturing, creative and other arenas.

The Centre for Creative Industries engages in relevant and appropriate areas where the need for creativity can be identified.

Links have been forged in Europe, Asia and Brazil to share expertise, staff and facilities for educating future generations of design influenced business people.

Staff within the Centre have developed links with design businesses, to assist with strategies for long term growth, and are liaising with local communities to facilitate infrastructural developments.

As creativity is seen as necessary for future economic growth, the research and educational impact of this Centre impacts upon the economic and manufacturing future not only of Scotland and the UK but also across the world.
