Course content

Almost everything we do in our daily lives employs creative technology in one way or another, whether this is film and music, print and broadcast or commerce and interactive entertainment. Our increasing dependence on technology means there is a growing need for skilled and highly versatile creative technologists who are able to identify, design, build and implement systems and solutions that stretch the potential of software and programming.

The MSc Creative Technology will equip you to work at the cutting edge of associated industries, with the key analytic and creative skills needed to embrace new and as yet unimagined technologies and their uses. You will gain an enhanced understanding of practice, technology and people, along with the ability to select appropriate working methods and approaches in professional creative contexts. It is also a pathway to further academic study in the field or for those wishing to forge a career within international research.

Building on your skills

The course offers an in depth and critical approach. Practical learning will allow you to create, apply and evaluate technological solutions in different creative contexts, including programming, web technologies, physical computing and project management. You will also have the opportunity to specialise in particular areas of interest - enabling you to develop a deeper understanding of various elements of the creative technology landscape.

The Masters degree is relevant for technical, engineering, science or mathematics graduates looking to advance their competence in the development and application of technology. It is equally appropriate for creative practitioners with the relevant level of technical experience.

Designed for the real world

Established links with national and international industry and some of Bristol's most exciting cultural organisations give you the opportunity to gain real-world experience though collaborative projects and work placements.

To enhance your professional skills and experience, from day one you will start working on real projects and building your portfolio. By developing your skills as a broad-based, creative technologist, you will be ready to step into relevant roles across a diverse range of sectors, spanning arts practice, academia and research, multinational industry and entrepreneurial start ups.
