The MSc by Research in Visual and Interactive Computing allows you to undertake a year-long individual programme of personally and professionally enriching research.

Your visual and interactive computing research project will be shaped by participation in research activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratory activity and fieldwork, as well as your involvement in one of our established research groups.
