Course content

Technology is becoming increasingly important to art, design and culture and the skills associated with the once-separate creative and technical worlds overlap more and more. This is a highly practical course with an emphasis on collaboration and experimentation. You will benefit from your lecturers creative, academic and technical expertise, and you'll be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and tackle something new.

This is a highly practical course with an emphasis on collaboration and experimentation. You'll work with your peers on group projects and in the past students have made an interactive cushion, explored Kinect hacking, created apps and designed an interactive breakfast table that showed the news. Never mind thinking outside the box – you'll be inventing 1,001 new things to do with it.

You'll benefit from the cutting-edge facilities in our £80 million Art, Design and Media building, which is equipped with TV, radio and sound studios, workshops for digital image processing and a digital publishing suite. You will have access to cutting-edge haptic technology, a graphics, and a games programming laboratory, and you'll have the chance to use the Human Interactive Systems Laboratory, a centre of research into haptic technology, as well as the Lansdown Centre for Electronic Arts.

We welcome students from any background onto this course– it's an unusual opportunity for students with diverse skills to work together, and it's this variety that gives it so much character.
