Cardiff Metropolitan has recently launched its much-anticipated Cardiff School of Technologies. The School of Technologies is partnered with technology-focused companies across the Cardiff Capital Region to support their plans for expansion with 'work ready' graduates. Areas of study include data science, cyber security, mobile computing, artificial intelligence and systems engineering.
The university has also climbed the league tables in both the Complete University Guide and the Guardian University Guide, reflecting high levels of graduate employment, research quality and student satisfaction. It has also been recognised on the International stage, receiving the Comprehensive Internationalisation Badge from the International Association of Universities.
Closer to home, the university has continued its commitment to sustainability. Cardiff Metropolitan has been named the best university in Wales, and 8th in the UK for sustainability in the annual People and Planet University League. This sustainability includes a successful commitment to using 100% green electricity since October 2017, generated entirely from renewable sources such as wind, photovoltaic and landfill and biomass gasses.
Cardiff Metropolitan has continued to invest in its facilities, and in 2017 opened a brand-new GBP 2.4 million Outdoor Athletics Arena, to accompany the existing National Indoor Athletics Centre at the School of Sport and Health Sciences. Along with the launch of the first-of-its-kind Sports Broadcast MSc, the school continues to offer world class training to sports professionals on and off the pitch.
