School of Design
In the School of Design we develop methods and approaches to people and culture that equip our students to design excellence into our lives.
We are not just designing artefacts. By understanding the world around us, and understanding where design vision and ideas lie within a global context, we develop challenges to the way we live. Through a process of collaboration, we encourage students to build with us a collective philosophy of what design is and what it might become.
Edinburgh is a world-leading centre of knowledge in science, engineering and innovation. The School of Design is developing a network of these key partners which will place the School at the forefront of research development.
The studio and workshop environment in the School of Design is spectacular. Our staff are leading practitioners and theorists in their fields.
We encourage our designers to create visions and identities that are both innovative and sustainable. We are educating not only problem-solvers but also opportunity-seekers. Our students will become the designers/thinkers/makers who will positively shape the world we inhabit.
