Course summary

**Explore the cultural reaches and limitless opportunities of existing and emerging technology, by approaching computer-based digital content as an art form. You’ll address the impact of technology on society and culture, by studying its technical aspects and history, and discovering its potential for innovation.** This course will provide you with the technical and design skills you need to lead the development of interactive technologies. You’ll explore the language of code as a mode of expression, and then develop forms of art that establish interaction with others. You’ll develop a full awareness of the social, ethical and environmental impact of those technologies in the connected contemporary world. You’ll learn beyond understanding how to develop new digital interfaces, to also understand why they are necessary as a means of encouraging technological ideas that suggest alternative ways of inhabiting information communities. You will be fully equipped to create, design, intervene, innovate and speculate on new and emerging technologies in the public realm, in the studio and as a form of social enterprise. Core specialisms include consideration of areas such as; interaction design, interface design, social media design, interactive web media, mobile application design, web design, responsive and immersive environments, internet art, network-based art, and software art. Through studying Creative Technologies you’ll learn how digital code, platforms and media exist simultaneously in the studio, lab, and streets. Our state-of-the-art facilities, including the Fabrication Lab, Impact Lab, Immersive Media Lab in addition to our world-class Material Lab, and cultural partnerships with the Tate and Karst, mean that studying technology includes the exploration of the digital evolution of traditional materials and methods of making. Graduates can become: - App developers- Web designers- Interface and user experience designers- Digital data forecasters- Interactive artists - Immersive media artists
