This course is a practical, project-led programme where students will study and specialise in a range of modules including computer graphics and special effects, and the visual understanding behind computer games and artificial intelligence.

They will also gain exposure to modern visual effects tools, programming techniques and physics-based animation, with the opportunity to apply these and adapt algorithms to typical problems in an advanced visual effects R and D environment.
