Faculty of Business IT Team

The FoBIT Team work with academics across the faculty and colleagues in Futures Entrepreneurship Centre, Academic Support, Technology & Innovation and Careers and employability to equip students with the creative and technical skills they need to succeed in business.

We do this through running bespoke workshops, providing on-line resources and offering drop-in support.

Our facilities:

We have a dedicated video production room, complete with green-screen, which can be booked by students. 

Our meeting room has a Tandberg video-conferencing system which uses IP and a boundary microphone.  NB: This is a video-conferencing system not a browser-based web-conferencing system. We also have a projector and screen which can be used for Skype and/or GoToMeeting.
