Course summary

BSc (Hons) Creative Computing has been developed in response to national and international industry demand for creative graduates with advanced technical skills.The creative industries are changing. Creative expression, expression and design are being done as much in the digital realm as the physical. The physical is blending with the digital in new ways, and the medium of making in this real is creative computing. Whilst many creative people know how to use digital platforms that others have designed, relatively few are able to design and make, using coding as their medium. Imagine a world where creative practitioners can build the technology they need to use for their creative practice.This course will enable you to build in-demand skills in coding and software design based on an understanding of the computing and creative industries, paired with a sound understanding of creative design principals.Students will start by focussing both on creativity – what do we mean by this? how can computers support creativity? can computers be creative? – as well as the coding necessary to build future applications. Coding lies at the heart of the degree – starting with the computational thinking underpinning the basic structures, through creating their own objects, and gradually adding computational creativity, thinking about the physical or natural behaviour of our created objects Students will also explore data, from the networks sharing this, finding patterns in data, to using data ethically, to exploring why data can exclude rather than explainOver the three years students will apply their coding and creative skills for creative web and app work, thinking about interaction, image and text. Students will also be introduced to AI and machine learning, to support project developmentAs with all courses at NUA, your learning experience will be hands-on, developing projects to industry briefs, gaining an understanding of the potential for, and theory of computer-based technology in a wide range of digital creative and design sectors. Your tutors will be experienced industry professionals, grounding you in the technical skills you need whilst supporting the development of your creative and design flair., and you will have opportunities to work with digital creative businesses in NUA’s network. You will develop excellent transferrable skills in teamwork, project management, communication and problem-solving through employability and entrepreneurship sessions integrated into your programme.As a graduate of the course, you will be a technology-led creative professional, with creative and design skills that have been the bedrock of specialist teaching at Norwich University of the Arts since 1845, and cutting edge coding skills that will unlock a wide range of high quality graduate roles in creative software development, user experience, digital media, immersive technology or design projects linked to AI/machine learning.
