This state-of-the-art facility includes 40 computers equipped with the latest design software, large screen TVs and a mobile TriCaster that allows students to host outside radio and TV broadcasts while streaming live footage to the internet.

Teaching in the School is delivered by a team of dedicated and highly qualified lecturers with a wealth of industry experience. London Met has also been recognised by leading technology company Cisco for providing the best delivery of the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) curriculum in Europe.
