Course content

The MSc International Heritage Visualisation will equip candidates with the knowledge and skill sets required to create digital records and visualisations of heritage sites and objects of local, national and international significance.

Candidates will become familiar with the range of skills needed for the meaningful 3D documentation of cultural sites and heritage assets, and the ability to present them effectively for use by the varied user groups and audiences engaged in areas such as cultural heritage management, conservation, academic research, tourism and beyond.

The course is structured using a combination of lectures, seminars and hands on recording (including the use of laser scanning and photogrammetry) and model development to enable students to understand the process of creating original 3D datasets from critical approaches and project planning through to technical execution and delivery. Utilising experienced professionals from the fields of heritage management, buildings recording and 3D modelling the candidates will benefit from the courses' novel approach to fostering multi-disciplinary study in heritage, architectural visualisation, animation, interactive software development and archaeological practice.
