Subject Specific Modules

Undergraduate Progression Project

The module brings together the skills and subject knowledge that students have developed during the programme and provides the experience of applying this to a project which the students will select and manage.

Students will learn about the process of developing a small-scale research project and will get the opportunity to think about the advantages and disadvantages of some of the most commonly used research tools by experimenting with them and looking at how others have used them. The project that is produced will demonstrate the application of both subject knowledge and the skills that have gained across the programme and provides students with the experience and confidence to know that they will be able to carry out this type of work later on in their undergraduate studies.

Introduction to Computing and Creative Industries

This module introduces the foundational concepts relevant to the field of Computer Science and develops practical computing skills through laboratory exercises and/or case studies. The module also equips students with a range of foundational skills required for successful advancement in the creative industries. The subject will enable students to explore the fundamental practical, theoretical, personal and professional skills & concepts relevant to creative industries, such as animation and games, and aims to raise both awareness and interest in best practice and ethical issues.
