Creative Technology (MSc)


Course Description

Within the creative and media industries, small groups of people with strong individual talent have often evolved into innovative companies. Our course will help you develop in your own area of expertise, increasing your ability to work creatively with like-minded professionals.

This course gives you the flexibility to study within the broad area of creative technology, while specialising in an area of your choice through option modules. This might encompass emerging 3D computer animation techniques, working on post-production special visual effects or exploring innovative photographic visual effects technologies.

Depending on your choice of options you could also gain a working knowledge of game play and game design, develop a practical understanding of the creative possibilities of the music production studio environment, study the use of innovative sound and audio effects technology or produce audio content and sound design for interactive media and games. Quite simply, we are giving you the opportunity to design your own course.

- Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University demonstrated strength in five emerging areas of research which it entered into the assessment for the first time, including computer science.
