Course Description

Our BSc (Eng) Creative Computing addresses this shortage of talent, arming students with a portfolio of artistic, design and technical skills through an exciting and flexible programme.

You’ll learn core skills for new media production – interactive media design, arts computing and physical computing – as well as understanding the theory underpinning computer and multimedia systems.

In the second year you’ll choose one of technology, design, geography/media or film production to study in depth, picking up all the practical and technical skills you’ll need to work in the creative industries. The final year offers a wide choice of modules, so you can fine-tune your learning to match your aims and interests.

In your final-year individual project you can link your creative skills to research in the school, including e-textiles, interaction design and digital music, presenting your project in the Queen Mary Design Show.
