Ben Mundy is the manager at Fab Lab Plymouth and Knowledge Exchange Coordinator at The Environmental Futures & Big Data Impact Lab.

Ben’s career started with him studying a fine art sculpture Foundation course at Buckinghamshire College in High Wycombe (now known as Buckinghamshire New University). He then moved into furniture design, studying for a City and Guilds qualification at London College of Furniture. Upon graduating, Ben worked as a furniture maker, running his own business.

In 2007, Ben moved into education, working as a technician at the University of Plymouth and setting up the CNC production facility for their Faculty of Arts. He also taught on the institution’s Product Design and 3D Design programmes, focusing on teaching furniture makers their trade, until 2014.

Ben then spent three years running the CNC department of Touch Design Group, a high end furniture making company in Exeter who make luxury bespoke furniture and interiors.

Ben joined Plymouth College of Art in late 2017, to head up our Fab Lab Plymouth team, aiding businesses in the South West in bringing new products to market by providing access to training opportunities, academic research, technical expertise and access to new technologies in the area of digital design and digital manufacturing.
