Why study MA/MSc Creative Technology at Middlesex University?

Technology has become fundamentally important to art, design and culture. We increasingly engage with creative technology in our daily lives through print and broadcast, virtual an augmented experiences, games, film and music. We recognise the importance of combining the skills associated with the once-separate creative and technical worlds and have designed this masters course to ensure that you benefit from cross-faculty teaching between the Arts and Creative Industry and Science and Technology faculties. Our multi-disciplinary approach to teaching will equip you with the skills required to work as a professional within creative tech industries, as you’ll learn by experimenting with technologies and exploring creative and innovative solutions.

You’ll be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and tackle something new, benefitting from support and guidance from our practice-based staff who are active in research and constantly seeking new and creative ways to ensure that the course meets the needs of industry and employers.

You'll collaborate with your peers on group projects undertaking live briefs from Industry to get a feel of the professional world. In the past students have created immersive VR and AR environments, Hololens environments, 360° videos, projection mapping projects, locative mobile apps, novel gaming environments, wearable tech and an interactive cushion.

Working within the current public distancing guidelines, we will be enhancing our online teaching with access to our cutting-edge facilities such as TV, radio and sound studios, 3D workshops and workshops for high-end digital work, green screens and gaming and video editing computers. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to delve into your creative projects and take advantage of our award-winning facilities throughout your degree.

We welcome students from any background onto this course and encourage our students to work collaboratively on projects to develop transferable skills such as team-building, networking and ideation.
