About us

Designed by Manchester Metropolitan University

Emile has been designed by experts from Manchester Metropolitan University’s Faculty of Education and School of Computing.

Manchester Metropolitan University developed initially as a centre of Technology, Art and Design from Manchester Mechanics’ Institution (1824) and Manchester School of Design (1838).

Later schools of Commerce (founded 1889), Education (f. 1878) and Domestic Science (f. 1880) were added along with colleges at Didsbury, Crewe, Alsager and the former Domestic and Trades College (f. 1911), latterly Hollings College.

Now Manchester Metropolitan University is the third most popular university in terms of applications in the UK.
