The Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment (officially abbreviated as TEE) is the technology department of Birmingham City University located in the current City Centre Campus in the eastern half of the Millennium Point complex. Spanning five stories of the £114 million complex in the developing Eastside district, the centre offers a variety of courses in undergraduate and postgraduate education.
From September 2000, it was known as the Technology Innovation Centre, but during 2008, the faculty began the process of rebranding and was temporarily known as Technology Innovation and Development until Autumn 2009 when TIC was officially renamed to the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment. The faculty now includes the Department of Computing; and the School of Property, Construction and Planning, forming four schools including School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks (CTN); School of Digital Media Technology; School of Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Systems (EDMS); and School of Property, Construction and Planning. The rebranding is intended to coincide with the development of a new campus in the city's Eastside regeneration scheme.
School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks (CTN) 
The School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks (CTN) runs academic subject disciplines such as electronics, embedded systems, telecommunications, networks, software engineering and games technology. It has developed both vocational and non-vocational learning, whilst leading the development and use of blended distance teaching and learning approaches over the last decade.
School of Digital Media Technology 
The School of Digital Media Technology is one of only 19 universities nationally, and currently the only one in the Midlands to have been granted Media Academy status. This accreditation is awarded by Skillset, the industry body that supports skills and training for the creative media industries by developing media education in the UK.
School of Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Systems (EDMS) 
The School of Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Systems (EDMS) offers a wide range of courses in engineering and many related disciplines. There are a choice of over 12 undergraduate and postgraduates courses ranging from BSc Motor Sports Technology to BEng Mechanical engineering and from MSc Automotive Calibration and Control to MSc Supply Chain Management.
The School has strong academic and research links with business and industry, such as Morgan Motors and actively works with leading international technology and engineering solution partners such as PTC and Technosoft, providers of industry standard computer aided engineering (CAE) tools.
The Birmingham School of the Built Environment 
The Birmingham School of the Built Environment, known as the school of Property, Construction and Planning prior to 2011, offers courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. All courses are accredited by at least one of six professional bodies: Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), Association of Building Engineers (ABE), Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
There are undergraduate courses in surveying, construction, property, architectural technology and planning; and postgraduate conversion courses that enable both cognate and non-cognate degree holders to pursue a professional qualification. In addition to professional recognition, partnerships with industry ensure that courses remain current and relevant.
In 2009, the School of Architecture celebrates its 100th year. The School is part of Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, one of the largest, most comprehensive providers of art and design disciplines outside London. The Division of Housing, part of the School of Social Sciences, has been delivering professional housing programmes for nearly 20 years and is a major regional provider of housing education in the Midlands, offering accredited courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Courses are accredited by either the Chartered Institute of Housing or the Environmental Health Registration Board.
