The current academic year has already been a busy and successful one for Cardiff Metropolitan University. The University has recently formally launched its much-anticipated Cardiff School of Technologies, which will partner with technology-focused companies across the Cardiff Capital Region to support their growth plans with 'work ready' graduates in areas such as data science, cyber security, mobile computing, artificial intelligence and systems engineering.
Cardiff Metropolitan University has climbed the league tables in both the Complete University Guide and the Guardian University Guide, reflecting its 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, celebrating after being named the best university in Wales, and eighth 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.
The University has also continued to invest in its facilities, opening a brand-new GBP 2.4 million Outdoor Athletics Arena, to complement its 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 now being offered at the University, the School continues to offer world class training to sports professionals on and off the pitch.
