Oxford Brookes University, Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

Introduction

The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University has an international reputation for excellence, innovation and an ambitious desire to be recognised as one of the most exciting places to study in the world.

We have built a learning community underpinned with an understanding that innovation comes out of our students being able to take risks in a supportive environment. We encourage experimentation, playful trial and error, and academic curiosity. The results of this approach are there to be seen in the student satisfaction statistics, research rankings and graduate destinations.

We work closely with our graduates' future employers and marketplaces, and understand that there is a world out there with a voracious appetite for new and exciting creative ideas welded to solid business acumen.

The Faculty is home to six Schools and Departments providing specialist and interdisciplinary teaching, research and knowledge transfer across a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in purpose-built facilities in Oxford. However, much of our portfolio is also now delivered by academic partners elsewhere around the globe.

Our Schools and Departments are:

  • The School of Arts
  • The School of Architecture
  • The Department of Planning
  • The Department of Real Estate and Construction
  • The Department of Computing and Communication Technologies
  • The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences

The Faculty integrates theory and practice within an enthusiastic and informed collegiate culture; one that embraces new technologies, creates and communicates new knowledge, and celebrates the achievements of all our stakeholders and partners - staff, students, businesses, and community organisations.

Because over a quarter of our students are from other countries, we have strong international links and friendships with individuals and institutions all across the world. International aspiration marks everything we engage in.

We hope you will join with us in open, honest debate, developing your discipline within a twenty first century context of technological development and interdisciplinary innovation. You will be made very welcome.

Shelter after Disaster - September 2016 This course is run by the School of Architecture Immediately after a natural disaster a critical need is for safe shelter. The aim of the programme is to develop reflective practitioners who combine understanding of practical and strategic issues of development and emergency practice with an appreciation of the wider political context in which they operate. This is a programme that combines development, humanitarian practice and the role of the practitioner intervening in post disaster reconstruction. Why choose this course? This course will provide you with background knowledge to be able to understand and discuss the essential components of shelter response after a disaster. The decisions made very early on in a shelter programme have far reaching effects and can affect the subsequent success or failure of permanent housing; they can enhance or hinder the building of community resilience and its preparedness in the face of future disasters. The course is equally valid for students with technical as well as non-technical backgrounds. There is no need to have any previous knowledge in building, construction, architecture or engineering. The course delivery is designed to be flexible to allow you to study if you are working, or between deployments, or want to study in Oxford full time. We have developed good relationships with agencies working in the shelter field, and we occasionally are able to offer students internship possibilities within these organisations.
