Media, Design and Technology Research

Research groups/units:

  • Visual Computing
  • Communication, Culture and Media

There is a healthy and growing programme of collaborative work with industry, much of it research based. This is managed through the dedicated Digital Media Working Academy, which has also generated its own funding and is notable for housing a state-of-the-art motion capture system.

Full-time support is offered to all research active staff and students by the Research Administrator and specialist staff in Technical Support.

The Centre for Visual Computing

World-class R&D in visual image data processing, bridging the business and academic worlds.

The Centre has a unique dual focus. Our research projects change the way we compute visual image data; our commercial projects address real business problems and deliver practical applications for our industry partners.

Communication, Culture and Media (CCM) Research Group

A particular strength of the work of the CCM Research group is that it takes place within the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics. The fact that researchers at Bradford in the field of culture, communication and media studies work so closely with colleagues in mobile telecommunications and computing is relatively unusual in UK institutions but is more common at institutions in the US and Europe.
