The University is making a major investment in design. The Athena Building provides 10,000 square metres of studio space for digital design. The Phoenix Building provides 4,000 square metres of studio space for postgraduate research and commercial activity. Teesside also has an excellent record in prestigious national and international competitions.
Our dedicated teaching team is made up of nine academic staff. We have a commitment to innovation and research in learning and teaching; the School's Learning and Teaching Co-ordinator is a member of the section and Professor Ben Knights (National Teaching Fellow, 2001) is currently seconded to direct the English Subject Centre. In September 2005 we welcomed a Royal Literary Fund Fellow, novelist Jonathan Tulloch, to the School and University.
