Course Description

This programme runs as part of a suite of six courses available from Digital Media Kingston: MAMSc User Experience Design, MAMSc Games Development and MAMSc 3D Computer Generated Imagery. This new suite of courses are twinned across the arts and sciences to prepare you for employment in the digital media industry where teams of specialists work together to develop and author innovative digital media projects. The courses have been specifically designed to utilise the best digital media expertise and resources from across the four faculties of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA), Art and Social Sciences (FASS), Computing, Information Systems and Mathematics (CISM) and Science (SCi). They have been developed in consultation with our industry panel which includes representatives from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, DreamWorks and Samsung Design Europe. The emphasis on project and team work provides an industry-focused learning experience where you can hone your own specialist skills in a professional context. Work placements, real projects, internships and an industry mentoring scheme mean these courses will arm you for entry into the fast-growing and highly competitive digital media arena. What will you study? In the introductory part of the course, common across all DMI courses, you will work with other students from diverse academic, creative and technical backgrounds to experience the commonalities in professional digital media practice. The second part of the course is shared with Games Development MA and 3D Computer Generated Imagery MAMSc students. It focuses on the craft of modelling and visual effects, including the core 3D graphics skills of modelling, shading, lighting and rendering. The specialist modules emphasise 3D graphics programming for games and the mathematics, physics and coding skills which underpin this. Optional modules allow you to either develop an individual design project andor specialise in development methods, multimedia andor networked communications in project work with other DMi students. For your final project you will be encouraged to work in a team, taking a professional role (eg programmer, level designer, art director etc) to produce a professional piece of work. Alternatively you may undertake an industry-based project.
