MSc Creative Computing is an exciting mix of advanced computing and creative practice set in the context of a world-renowned creative university.
About this course:
This course explicitly explores computational thinking and this will enable you to engage with the cultural agency of computational technology.
The integration of computing and creative practice in MSc Creative Computing will help you gain the specialist skills required to build a successful career in creative practice, the creative industries or within the digital technology sector more broadly.
Great reasons to apply:
Learn the skills sought after in industry:
Creative Developers are sought after in industry with their ability to both translate creative direction into code and deliver creative direction themselves. As a graduate from this course, you will be able to develop for the dominant frameworks that underpin much of the creative digital industries and lead creative work with technology.
You'll be exposed to different modes of learning and develop a strong technical fluency with computational technologies with discovery-based learning rooted in creative practice.
High-quality research informed teaching:
The course is significantly informed by the research themes of the newly established UAL Creative Computing Institute (CCI). The CCI's research themes of Creativity, Machine Learning and AI; Human Computer Interaction; Platforms, Big Data and Digital Citizenship are imbedded in units throughout the course.
Critical engagement with technology:
Through critical studies and creative practice the course will provide you with opportunities to question the trajectory of technology development and understand the role of technology in producing the future.
UAL Creative Computing Institute (CCI):
This newly established UAL will be located within the new building at Camberwell. You will have access to purpose built facilities and technical support, and exposure to creative computing research.
A material understanding of computational technologies:
Develop an appreciation of what computation is in both a technical and cultural sense. This understanding will enable you to challenge dominant ways of deploying technology at the level of code, for example re engineering facial recognition algorithms to challenge cultural basis.
Who should take this course
MSc Creative Computing thoroughly explores computational thinking, enabling you to critically engage with the cultural agency of computational technology. You will acquire an advanced set of applied computing skills covering the advanced computational workflows that support innovation in the digital technology sector. You will also extend your coding skills to include the advanced frameworks that underpin innovative creative computing practice in the crafting of bespoke digital experiences. Building on these skills, and through creative practice, you will develop your ability to innovate and explore advanced computational practice.
With units in this course informed by research from the Institute CCI, this course covers evolving areas such as advanced visualisation, physical computing, machine intelligence, and how the contemporary world is being defined through human computer interaction and social platforms.
For the advanced project, you will be encouraged to build your enterprise skills and externalise your work to potential industry contexts and platforms.
