Course content

Our MA Digital Fabrication programme offers contemporary makers the opportunity to research, explore and experiment with emergent technologies, encouraging the development of individual design practice in relation to digital fabrication.

Digital fabrication has sparked a design and manufacturing revolution in which rapidly changing technologies are radically challenging what we conceive to be possible.

You will critically analyse contemporary innovations and inventions, considering the spatial, material and formal possibilities afforded by them in the development of your own approach.

You will explore how, with the reduction of manufacturing hierarchies and increasing democratisation, there has emerged a more courageous entrepreneurial attitude; one which capitalises on the opportunity to make without a dedicated production line, and maximises product customisation, giving rise to new forms of entrepreneur, inventor, designer and marketer.

Sitting at the intersection of ideas, products, technology and manufacture, this MA programme is ideally suited to creatives from all areas of art and design who are intent on mastering and challenging the quickly developing discipline of digital fabrication.
