School of Simulation and Visualisation

Today our Digital Design Studio has been renamed to the School of Simulation and Visualisation (‘SimVis’) making us the fourth school at The Glasgow School of Art.

This shows GSA’s commitment to us and recognition of our evolving academic activity and growing portfolio of both postgraduate and future undergraduate teaching.

SimVis will continue to push the boundaries of simulation and visualisation through our commercial, research and academic activities.

Virtual Tour of the DDS

The DDS is located at Pacific Quay in Glasgow – next to the BBC and the Glasgow Science Centre. We are located at the heart of Creative Clyde – a cluster of media and creative industries which also includes STV, Film City Glasgow and a host of companies working in film, TV, new media and software.

We are based in The Hub, a building which itself hosts a mix of startups and more established companies working in these areas. You can see the inside the DDS and The Hub in the interactive panoramas, below.
