Course content

MA Creativity, Making and Innovation Practice is a creative, future-thinking Masters course. It is designed as a multi-disciplinary practice-based programme that combines creativity, innovation, technology and enterprise.

Addressing challenges on a range of societal issues, you will research and develop concepts and prototypes. Working collaboratively, in an open lab environment, you will be supported by technical and innovation experts. You will apply your previous experience in creative, artistic, design, making, engineering or computing backgrounds.

The emphasis in this course is on the application of creative thinking to technology in the development of innovation concepts. You will work collaboratively across disciplines, supported by lecturers, technical and enterprise specialists to develop working prototypes, service designs and business concepts.

Teaching will be through workshops, masterclasses from subject experts, tutorials and technical instruction. During the course you may, depending upon your project and availability be given access to facilities at BCU’s innovation space, STEAMhouse. These include rapid prototyping and manufacturing such as CNC, laser cutting, 3D printing, metal work and print technologies
