Department aim:

The Design & Engineering Department at Robert May's believes that every student should have the opportunity to learn through the experience of hands-on making. This has come to include CAD/CAM, rapid prototyping (3d printing etc) and most recently, a return to textiles. This is a diverse department with many specialist subjects being taught.
