Immerse yourself in the world of emergent digital technologies. Integrating science, technology and art, we’ve created a multi-disciplinary, research-focused environment in which you can develop your own personal digital practice. From artists and designers to curators and musicians, our programme encourages critical discourse through the creative and innovative application of digital technologies.
-Break through the traditional boundaries of science, art and technology. Work in a cross-discipline environment and learn to implement pioneering digital technologies. -Build a path to an exciting and dynamic career – our students have gone on to work as web designers, games developers, lecturers and digital consultants. -Engage in a dynamic and integrated approach to teaching, designed to nurture creative communities and define new areas of innovation. -Participate in international research collaborations though close relationships with the Centre for Media Art and Design Research (MADr) and the Institute of Digital Art and Technology (i-DAT). You’ll also benefit from strong links to all of their affiliated PhD programmes. -Cultivate advanced digital skills through access to exclusive technological facilities including the Immersive Vison Theatre and IBM funded Smarter Planet lab. -Join our network of award-winning graduates in the creative and technology sectors. Previous students such as Adam Montandon and Gianni Corino have gone on to win accolades from the Media Innovation Awards, Summit International Awards and Scrittura Mutante Awards. -Study remotely, foster professional relationships and work alongside your studies through our flexible approach to learning. Modules are delivered via workshops and symposium sessions in digital media venues, supported by interactive online technologies. -Establish and define your personal digital practice through your major project. Tailor your assessment to your own creative needs, by choosing from different proportions of practical and written work. Explore your individual interests with the support of two dedicated project supervisors. -Choose to study digital art and technology as either a Master of Research (MRes) taught programme or Research Masters (ResM) research programme.
Benefit from both online and offline learning, giving you the flexibility to study remotely and maintain employment alongside your programme. Learn to embed theory in critical practice and prepare for your final project. Investigate virtual, networked and augmented environments in context and explore new digital architectures through diverse development tools and models. Full-time study allows you to take taught modules in parallel with your research project over one year. As a part-time student you’ll study the taught modules first, followed by the research project over a period of two years. Undertake a creative and experimental production accompanied by a dissertation or report as your final major project. Choose from different ratios of practical to written work and define your own digital practice, exploring your individual interests. You’ll also benefit from having two allocated project supervisors.
