We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Swansea based Faculty of Architecture, Computing and Engineering (FACE) is a multidisciplinary faculty, covering subjects in the built environment, computing, electronics, environmental conservation, logistics and manufacturing engineering.
The Faculty has a principle of purchasing industry-standard equipment and leading software applications to ensure that all students are able to build real-world, practical skills throughout their studies, to prepare them for employment. Throughout the faculty we give our student access to equipment and software including:
* Composites Autoclave
* Thermographic cameras
* Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer
* 5 axis CNC machining centre
* Engine dynamometers
* Siemens NX
* ANSYS Fluent
* Visual Studio
* SQL Server
We also pride ourselves on the excellent levels of support that we provide to all of our students, throughout the faculty, both on campus and online. Our experienced tutors are friendly and approachable and are available for one-to-one advice throughout the semester, either in person or via email, phone or Skype.
The Faculty continually aims to:
* Create programmes that are designed and updated in close co-operaton with organisation and professional bodies to ensure our students receive the most up-to-date and industry-relevant education.
* Build and maintain enthusiastic teaching teams to provide active local and international links that feed up-to-date skills and real-world scenarios into learning activities and coursework
* Produce graduates that are highly employable
* To use our research expertise to work with industry to provide solutions to problems
Our academic staff work to develop knowledge within a specialist area of research and participate in scientific conferences. A particular strength is the strong industrial experience of many staff and this brings a real-world context for much of the student project work.
The Faculty works closely with external organisations and professional bodies to ensure that our programmes are relevant to the needs of industry and prepare our graduates for employment. We aim to achieve professional recognition for all of our programmes, which range from the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport, British Computer Society and BREAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment.
All academic disciplines within the faculty are wholly dependent on research-led and research-informed teaching.
We offer MPhil and PhD research supervision for research students. Current research topics include: data acquisition, data mining of large data sets, pedagogy for programming, security threats within wireless networks, medical devices, non-destructive testing, environmental monitoring, smart and intelligent buildings, business analytics, manufacturing systems, health informatics, motorcycle dynamics and composites, tidal lagoons, coastal erosion and environmental conservation.
