Course content

The Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship comprises a group of academic staff with research interests in two related areas: design innovation and entrepreneurship, spanning both commercial and social sectors. This includes research wholly contained within one of these disciplines or bridging both subjects.

The centre has a reputation for a collaborative and participatory approach to teaching and research, ensuring impact for its stakeholders.

The profile of our team, most of whom are both practitioners and scholars, helps to ensure continual cross-fertilisation between academic and non-academic applied settings. We therefore welcome and encourage students from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Students may join directly from university studies or be experienced professionals, for example established entrepreneurs or designers.
