    Paul Inman, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Dean of the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment



    "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." - Paul Inman, Pro Vice Chancellor, Dean of Faculty
