You’ll have access to a brand-new robotics lab and the Fab Lab. It’s a purpose-built maker space – with 3D printers, laser scanners and cutters, and CNC – where you can digitally fabricate models and prototypes. Meanwhile the Hull Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE) offers advanced visualization, motion capture and computer graphics technology.


Our teaching is closely linked to our research in simulation, visualization, dependable systems, robotics, 3D printing, and mobile and distributed computing.
