The Faculty of Architecture, Computing and Engineering (FACE) is a multidisciplinary faculty, covering architecture, automotive and motorsport engineering, construction, computing, electronics, environmental management, logistics, and mechanical and manufacturing engineering.
FACE focuses on practical, hands-on experience, employability, industry-relevance and transferable skills that support future success in a changing world.
UWTSD’s superb new £350m SA1 Swansea Waterfront home for FACE provides students with purpose-built facilities for learning, teaching and research, as well as social, leisure and recreation space. UWTSD has invested more than £1.6m in new IT and AV infrastructure.
The magnificent IQ building, which is also home to Yr Athrofa: The Institute of Education in Swansea, houses specialist equipment for a range of activities across the FACE subject areas − more than £500k has been invested in automotive machinery, for example.
Opposite the IQ is the light and airy new library, Y Fforwm, providing library services over three floors, with views over the sea, city and beyond, plus space for teaching activity on the ground floor.
FACE will co-exist and co-create with industrial partners around the SA1 development, providing opportunities for students to be involved in commercialisation and enterprise activities.
