Key Course Facts
Go global and study abroad as part of your degree – apply for our Creative Computing BEng/BSc with a Year Abroad. Queen Mary has links with universities in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia (partnerships vary for each degree programme).
The boundary between digital and creative roles is blurring, and few graduates have the combination of skills employers are looking for. Our BSc (Eng) Creative Computing addresses this shortage of talent, arming students with a portfolio of artistic, design and technical skills through an exciting and flexible programme.
You’ll learn core skills for new media production – interactive media design, arts computing and physical computing – as well as understanding the theory underpinning computer and multimedia systems. In the second year you’ll choose one of technology, design, geography/media or film production to study in depth, picking up all the practical and technical skills you’ll need to work in the creative industries. The final year offers a wide choice of modules, so you can fine-tune your learning to match your aims and interests. In your final-year individual project you can link your creative skills to research in the school, including e-textiles, interaction design and digital music, presenting your project in the Queen Mary Design Show.
