Overview

The past decade has seen a rapid expansion in the use of computer-based imagery in the generation of film, television, interactive entertainment and computer games.

This advanced course is designed for students who already have a relevant undergraduate degree in computer animation or computer-generated special effects, or for people with a computing / engineering undergraduate degree who can demonstrate sufficient relevant experience in these fields, and who want to further extend and develop their skills, knowledge and understanding.

Our teaching is backed up by an international research programme in imaging, multimedia, computer animation, virtual reality, distributed virtual environments, visualisation, digital video, humancomputer interaction, telecommunications and artificial intelligence.

Your choice of either the MA or the MSc route will depend on your previous experience, your interests and your career ambitions. Both routes share many modules; however the MA route allows you to develop your artistic and creative animation talents, while the MSc route allows you to develop your practical and technical skills.
