Welcome to the Department of Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Department currently runs the Diploma of Design Foundation Studies, but has a remit to expand research and studies in fine and applied art and design. The recently launched Diploma in Design Foundation Studies is the first step in providing training in visual literacy and competence to those students aspiring to design-related professions. Art and Design has, for too long, been considered as the antithesis of science and technology, whereas the truth is that, in the contemporary world of technology and industry, presentation and aesthetics have been the basis of the success of many technologically-innovative products, as much as brilliant engineering and science. As has been outlined in the Report 2020 Vision or Optical Illusion, it is envisaged that this Department develops into a School of the Visual Arts and Design, of relevance not only to students of architecture, and structural and civil engineering, but also of mechanical engineering, product design, media and communications, information and communication technology, conservation, graphic art, and, why not, also contemporary and fine arts.
