Investing in digital technology, bringing together the physical and digital campus
“To help create an enriching and rewarding experience by leveraging innovative technology to enhance the experience for both staff and students as they navigate the physical and virtual campus. This experience will differentiate Manchester Metropolitan University as it seeks to attract the best and brightest students and staff from around the world.”
Smart Campus is a group of projects which together will help shape the University. We are focusing on harnessing digital technologies for teaching, learning and working to ensure we are supporting our students, staff and visitors at Manchester Metropolitan University.
The projects and activities within Smart Campus may have different audiences, different foci and will be delivered at different points over the coming years, but the common theme throughout is that they aim to enhance the student experience and pull together the virtual and the physical campus.
All activities supporting Smart Campus stem from our Information Systems Strategy.
