Masters degrees in Multimedia Computing Science equip postgraduates with the skills to design, produce and manage computerised communications across a range of media usually presented on the internet. This includes text, pictures, animations, video and graphics.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc programmes, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Computer Science.
You will receive training in the fundamental concepts of designing and programming a range of computer communication systems, including requirements specifications, architectural design and implementation.
The benefit of theses Masters is the opportunity to specialise in an area of multimedia communications, such as mobile device application development, or improved database systems for social media platforms.
You will also explore the social and cultural significance of multimedia in the modern era. Particularly, you will examine the consumer market, its policy and regulation in the industry, as well as ethics and security.
Careers are highly varied in this field. You could work for large corporations such as Apple or Facebook, or work on a smaller scale developing communications systems for independent businesses, particularly in online gaming.
