This Masters programme is suitable for a wide range of students, from a variety of backgrounds across Technology, the Digital Arts and Design and Humanities who are interested in exploring the trans/multi/inter-disciplinary potential of creative technologies in their work. Anticipated students would be interested in developing multidisciplinary knowledge and skills in the production of digital media and products. At the heart of this Masters programme is the vision of students fully in tune with contemporary creative technologies. These students do not sit solely within the traditional disciplines. You may be a technologist with a creative dimension, or an artist working with technologies, or a designer with programming skills, or any one of many more such 'crossovers'. The central vision of the IOCT Masters, therefore, is one of convergence and trans/inter/multi-disciplinarity, enabled by the new technologies.
The course is suitable for students from a variety of sectors; graduates wishing to pursue postgraduate study with a view to increasing their chances of employment within the creative technology industries, mature students with existing postgraduate degrees who wish to expand their interdisciplinary portfolio and company-sponsored professionals working in creative technology industries. The degree supports a range of contemporary career choices including computational intelligence, virtual environments, holographic imagery, web content development, the entertainment and games industries, and careers in teaching and creative technology development.
