About this course

Future course preview.

We are aiming to offer this course from September 2024. 

Develop the creative thinking and digital knowledge you need to succeed in creative digital industries. Learn how to design and build innovative and engaging experiences at the intersection of art, science and technology with our creative computing degree. Take exploratory and experimental approaches to the design and implementation of interactive experiences and applications. 

Develop your creative, technical and intellectual strengths in design and systems thinking. Work with industry standard computing technology at our vibrant arts campus and facilities. Create digital projects that focus on a range of factors relating to culture, society and the environment.    

Our creative computing course covers both the aesthetic and scientific dimensions of computational media. You’ll develop multimodal technical and conceptual methods that can be applied in art, design, industry and entertainment.

Creative computing students benefit from:

  • a creative computing studio workshop 
  • specialist equipment, resources and industry standard computer technologies 
  • virtual reality, augmented reality, robot design and programming systems 
  • a range of fully equipped workshops with fabrication and construction equipment 
  • guest speakers from a wide scope of industries 
  • participation at industry facing events
  • school wide collaborative projects
  • opportunities and assistance with internships across creative digital industries

Creative computing workplaces, industry events and productions

You have the opportunity to apply to spend an additional year working in industry. The year in employment offers you the chance to complete a work placement between part 2 and part 3 of your degree. This helps you develop your industry facing skills and workplace experience. If you pass, you will graduate with 'Year in Employment' on your degree certificate.

There will also be an opportunity to collaborate directly with the research labs in the School of Art through a new collaborative module in your second year, focusing on social and collaborative computing. 

You will also have access to optional study trips abroad and in the UK, to visit museums, galleries, and industry events. You will have several opportunities to showcase your work both in the UK and internationally. Additionally, optional study trips may be arranged as part of your learning experience and reasonable adjustments will be made for students with special needs.
