Welcome to the Brunel Design School

The new Brunel Design School brings together the exciting subject areas of design and digital media. We stand out as unique in the UK by approaching design from the perspective of engineering. We are proud to be ranked 2nd in the UK for producing the most employable design graduates (BIDA graduate employability survey, 2017). Brunel Design School has also been recognised as one of the best places in the world to research and study design * 2021 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

From the Head of the Brunel Design School

Hua_DongIn the spirit of our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of Britain’s most creative designers and engineers, the Brunel Design School strives to put innovation and entrepreneurship at the heart of everything we do. Sustainability, human-centred design, enabling technology, and business & strategy define our core research and teaching foci.

Our students are involved in Made in Brunel throughout their time at Brunel and the finale is their graduate showcase held in central London. 

“MiB has always had a large role in showcasing the talent of Brunel, as well as the best up and coming designers, and certainly had a large role in inspiring me to study design.” “I’ve learned so much and been challenged so hard, I have come out the other end a different person.”

I look forward to you joining us and hope you will have the same feeling upon graduation.
