Overview If you want to work in the Film, VFX or Games industries and you are interested in how sound, graphics, animation, and media intersect with computer science, then this is the course for you. You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer programming. Your computing studies are then complemented by modules in film, sound, and audio production, which are underpinned by technical choices for audio and graphics programming. You can then put it all together in your final year project by, for example, creating a film with VFX and motion capture. About This Course From day one, you’ll be immersed in a cutting-edge environment, soaking up the combined expertise of research-active staff from both the School of Computing Sciences and the School of Arts, Media, and American Studies. The academics from the School of Computing Sciences will teach you your computing subjects, while film, television and media subjects will be taught by the Arts, Media, and American Studies team. You’ll kick off your studies by getting hands-on experience in the essentials of computing, including computer systems, computer programming, software engineering and mathematics. You will then get the opportunity to study increasingly more specialist subjects such as computer graphics, video and audio processing, movie making, digital media production, artificial intelligence and more. It’s all brought to life in our specialist graphics lab with state-of-the-art computers and high-end graphics cards, as well as in our creative technology laboratory, which includes a film studio and motion capture suite. Thanks to our strong ties with media and entertainment companies, we can shape our course content and coursework projects based on current trends and real-world problems. In your final year, your independent research project gives you the chance to study a subject you are truly passionate about. You could look at anything from developing VR applications (such as 3D flight and vehicle simulators) and games with motion captured characters to mixed reality (MR) movie creation, augmented reality (AR) games or state of the art graphics projects with light effects (using shaders).
