Visualisation and Simulation


Being able to manipulate, become immersed in, or visualise concepts or scenarios that would otherwise be impossible to experience is a powerful way to learn

One of USC’s major strategic strengths within the higher education sector is that it offers some of the most sophisticated teaching facilities in the world.

USC is home to three cutting-edge visualisation facilities which were purpose built to provide a hybrid of 2D and 3D virtual reality techniques to allow students to see and interact with complex data in ways that accelerate and deepen their learning.

Collaboration Studio

The Collaboration Studio is designed to foster a collaborative approach to learning in a technology rich environment, with a huge 3D enabled screen on which multiple sources (table and student laptops, tablets, phones) can be shared.

Other facilities

The Engineering Learning Hub (ELH) also provides a standalone building, housing a Structures Laboratory and an Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory.

The Structures Laboratory provides equipment and test facilities for testing a wide range of structural materials, with data capture equipment enabling its operations and demonstrations linked back to the visualisation theatre.

The Manufacturing Laboratory contains two large industrial-sized CNC machines; a 5-axis, 24-tool vertical machining centre and a 12-tool lathe. Students are able to program these CNC machines to produce high precision, complex-contoured parts.
