More about our modern teaching environment
There is a wide range of facilities at our Knights Park campus, where this course is based. The Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture began an ambitious and ongoing programme of investment, making significant improvements to our workshops and other resources. These include:
- faculty-wide technical resources available to students on all courses;
- significant improvements to the 3D workshops and investment in new equipment, including a CNC-controlled 3D router, a rapid prototyper 3D printer, a 3D scanner and a 2D plotter/cutter;
- a state-of-the-art filming environment and animation suite;
- an industry standard photographic suite with two new digital darkrooms;
- newly-specified digital media workshops with hardware and software upgraded to a professional level;
- an inter-disciplinary project studio; and
- ongoing refurbishment of studios.
Further facilities include workshops for metalwork, woodwork and ceramic work workshops, plus sound production facilities and a large computer lab supporting PCs and Macs.
The University also has its own on-site galleries, including:
- Dorich House – home of the sculptor of Dora Gordine;
- the Stanley Picker Gallery – featuring exhibitions of contemporary art; and
- project spaces in the main University campus, which you can book for the construction of large-scale work.
You also benefit from:
- well-equipped lecture theatres, seminar rooms and workshops;
- the library's extensive book and journal collection – as well as more than 150,000 slides and visual references dating back to the 1600s; and
- the dedicated Graduate Centre on campus – including IT facilities, seminar rooms and social spaces.
