Research at CSAD

The School is host to a wide variety of exciting research and actively seeks to collaborate with academic and industry partners. We engage with cutting edge design technologies, engineering and material arts, as well as fine arts, and the history and theory of art and design.

 

WIRAD

Much of CSAD’s Art and Design research is conducted through the Wales Institute for Research in Art and Design (WIRAD). In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise the Art & Design panel rated 95% of the research submission as international standard, with 70% rated as either Internationally Excellent or World Leading.

WIRAD consists of centres, groups and networks under six over-arching themes; Applied Arts, Applied Design Research, Design Policy, Film, Photography and Digital Media, Fine Art and Performance and Pedagogical Research.

For further information about research at CSAD, please contact Professor Steve Gill, Director of Research, Cardiff School of Art & Design, email: sjgill@cardiffmet.ac.uk

Cardiff School of Art & Design is home to 1200 students, united by ambition and a true passion for creative enquiry. We are makers and thinkers in the fields of fine art, design, architecture and a range of craft practices. We have workshops and studios that ensure our students can operate as professionals from the moment they start their studies.
