Computer Graphics, Imaging and Multimedia with a Year in Industry

From day one you will be immersed in a cutting edge environment, soaking up the combined expertise of research-active staff from both the School of Computing Sciences and the School of Arts, Media and American Studies. The academics from School of Computing Sciences will teach you your computing subjects, while film, television and media subjects will be taught by the Arts, Media and American Studies team. You’ll kick off your studies by getting hands-on experience in the essentials of computing, including computer systems, computer programming, software engineering and mathematics. You’ll then get the opportunity to study increasingly more specialist subjects such as computer graphics, video and audio processing, movie making, digital media production, artificial intelligence and more. It’s all brought to life in our specialist graphics lab with state of the art computers and high-end graphics cards, as well as in our motion capture laboratory. You will also be able to use our 3D printer, 3D stereoscopic monitors, humanoid robots, drones, haptic feedback devices and mainstream Virtual Reality (VR) hardware. Thanks to our strong ties with media and entertainment companies, we are able to shape our course content and coursework projects based on current trends and real-world problems. You’ll also get the chance to experience it for yourself on your third year in industry – where you’ll develop your skills, confidence, contacts list and chances of employment once you graduate. In your final year, your independent research project gives you the chance to study a subject you’re truly passionate about. You could look at anything from developing VR applications (such as 3D flight and vehicle simulators) and games with motion-captured characters to mixed reality (MR) movie creation, augmented reality (AR) games or state of the art graphics projects with light effects (using shaders). **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll develop a solid theoretical and practical foundation in computer programming. You’ll learn the fundamentals of computer systems and principles, databases, mathematics and programming (including web-based programming). Your coursework projects will focus on real world applications, sharpening your programming and problem solving skills – must-haves for the IT, media and entertainment industries. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll get to choose between a variety of optional modules from the School of Arts, Media and American Studies, including film, television and media, and computing modules from the School of Computing Sciences. Your compulsory modules will include computer graphics, further programming and algorithms. You’ll also start planning your third-year industrial placement with the help of a member of staff and UEA’s Careers Centre. We receive many placement offers from local and national companies – and some students take up a placement overseas. **Year 3** Subject to successfully passing your company of choice’s selection procedure, you will spend 9-12 months working in industry to gain real life experience of working within the fields of computer graphics and multimedia. Our well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond will help you secure the best possible placement for you. Positions are usually paid, but the amounts may vary. **Year 4** Your only compulsory fourth-year module will be your final year project – for which you can suggest your own topic or choose from our list. This module is worth 40 credits, so it’s equivalent to two standard modules. Alongside your project, you’ll choose from a range of optional advanced modules from both the School of Computing Sciences and the School of Arts, Media and American Studies. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
