Programme overview

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.

Our 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, this 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.
