Games consoles and mobile devices are now ubiquitous, and computer graphics production has developed so rapidly that the best visual effects are those that you don't realise are there.
The Creative Technology programme is designed to introduce you to the rapidly emerging areas of computer science where technology impacts the creative design process. With a focus on the production of industry-relevant content, the programme introduces the theory behind animation and special effects production, interaction design and robotics. You will explore a wide range of topics, experience the entire creative design process and develop key skills in independent research.
You will study taught units between September and mid-June. After completing the taught units, you will work on a project between mid-June and late September.
Core units -Animation production -Character and set design -Computer graphics -Image processing and computer vision -Research skills -Server software -Web technologies
You will also be able to choose from a variety of optional units.
Project You must complete a project that consists of researching, planning and implementing a major piece of work. The project must contain a significant scientific or technical component and will usually involve software development. It is usually submitted in September.
This programme is designed to give you a significant advantage in the fast-paced world of emerging creative technologies industries. The programme will also give you the knowledge and experience to continue studying for a PhD, or to enter a career in research. With strong links to industry through the faculty’s academic staff and the University of Bristol Careers Service, we are well placed to support you in your career aspirations in industry or furthering your academic career.
