The new CST building will offer an environment designed with students at its heart. It will feature a suite of dedicated high-tech labs situated around an open learning area, a research hub for PhD students, and office space for lecturers and School staff. Take a sneak peek at our new Cardiff School of Technologies.
Open learning area and social spaces
The open learning and social spaces in the building will provide a home for Technologies students to hang out with peers, network and study in an informal setting.
Dedicated high-tech labs
Our high-spec labs will cover Robotics, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Games Design and Development, Computer Security and Electronic Systems.
Each laboratory will be designed to facilitate hands-on learning, covering all aspects of technology from computer programming to electronic embedded controllers, from the manipulation of large volumes of data to gain insights using AI, to the programming and development of micro controllers for the Internet of Things.
The Robotics Lab will contain a variety of sophisticated humanoid robots and robotic arms. Together with the Electronic Systems Lab, it will offer an immersive experience in the full range of automation and autonomous system techniques and applications.
Research hub and office space
Research students will benefit from a dedicated space and will be fully integrated with the delivery of undegraduate and postgraduate taught programmes. The new building will also provide a home for School lecturers and staff.
Display and exhibition areas
Display areas will allow temporary exhibitions of student work and research undertaken within the School, and will provide long-term displays of technology evolution. The new School of Technologies will create an innovative and stimulating environment to alert students and visitors to the infinite possibilities of technology development.
