Birmingham City University: School of Computing and Digital Technology

Birmingham City University
Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment

The Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment comprises two schools with a shared vision to create a powerful centre of technological excellence and innovation, and to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in the workplace and contribute to the wider society.

As an institution, we have invested £340 million in our facilities, including a major expansion of our City Centre Campus. In 2022, STEAMhouse, a brand new £70 million facility will become the new home to our Computing and Digital Technology students. This unique centre will give you access to an exceptional learning environment and facilities, as well as opportunities to collaborate with people and businesses across multiple sectors and work on real industry-based projects.

We are recognised internationally for the high quality of our teaching, research and extensive industry partnerships, and have established ourselves as one of the leading academies for Microsoft and Cisco Systems. We are an official Autodesk Training Centre (ATC) and have links with a range of employers including SevenCapital, Savills, Taylor Wimpey, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Jaguar Land Rover.
