  • CT 4001 Creative Technology Projects 1 (i) This module aims to develop students’ individual and collaborative creative abilities in a digital context. The module comprises a negotiated project chosen from a selection of briefs provided by enterprise partners. The project is normally collaborative and results in a portfolio of professional work. CT 4002 Fundamental Computing The module covers computer architecture, operating systems, networks and network theory. It provides a theoretical and practical foundation in computing, focusing on the particular needs of students studying creative computing. The module is assessed by phase tests and an unseen examination.CT 4003 Digital Enterprise (i) The aim of this module is to introduce business systems and practices in order to equip the student for work in the digital economy. The module includes industrial input and opportunities for observing and participating in real-world commercial environments. Students write a business plan and build an interactive website.CT 4004 Ideation and Creative Problem-Solving This module aims to develop students' abilities to solve problems creatively in the digital domain. Creative problem solving usually requires two distinct phases: divergent thinking (ideation) and convergent thinking (idea analysis and evaluation). The module will explore both approaches and their relationship in the context of the digital economy. Students are assessed by sandpit sessions and a report.
  • CT 5001 Creative Technology Projects 2 (i) This module aims to develop students’ individual and collaborative creative abilities in a digital context. The module comprises two negotiated projects, undertaken as internships with local or global industrial partners. The projects are normally collaborative and result in a portfolio of professional work. The formula is essentially the same as the equivalent Year 1 module, but the major difference is that the projects are now taken as internships.CT 5002 Intelligent ComputingThe module covers databases, programming for apps, and web development. This includes top-down modelling of business requirements, Web protocols and standards such as HTTP(S), HTML, CSS, XML and other Internet protocols, ER models, SQL, integrity, transactions, access control and security. Students are assessed through coursework.CT 5003 Project Management and Leadership (i)This module aims to equip students with general project management and leadership skills in any area of the digital economy. Students will gain practical experience of using project management techniques, including the use of a software tool. The topics covered include project initiation, risk, estimating and contracts, planning, human factors, project execution, and standard methods. The project will normally be a collaboration between enterprise partners and the course team as appropriate. Assessment is by management of a project and a critical journal.CT 5004 Digital Creativity and InnovationThe ability to be creative and to innovate are among the most prized assets in the digital economy. Yet notions of "creativity" and "innovation" are in general poorly understood. This module aims to provide students with a thorough background knowledge and understanding of theory and practice in creativity. There is also a positive emphasis on evaluating and improving personal employability through skills development and self reflection. Assessment is through a lab report, an essay and contribution to workshops.
  • CT 7001 Industry Showcase (i)N.B. This module is level 7 because of the design of an Integrated Masters, where students take a Masters-level component in Year 3.This module aims to develop students’ individual and collaborative creative abilities in the digital economy. The module comprises a number of negotiated projects that are normally collaborative and may be undertaken locally or internationally as industrial placements or internships, which will result in a major industry showcase event. Assessment is by contribution to the showcase, portfolio of work and personal journal.CT 6002 Enterprise ComputingThe module aims:(1) to understand the principles of Cloud Computing architecture, infrastructure and security, the concept of the personal cloud, and value of moving to Cloud based systems and implement Software as a Service.(2) to introduce a wide range of methods and techniques that are currently used and researched in the Semantic Web.(3) to introduce the concepts of Computing Management, and equip learners with specific computing project management skills. Students are assessed through coursework.CT 6003 Research MethodsThis module provides a grounding in research methods for creative technologies projects, including the dynamics of creativity, offering students methodologies and techniques to support and develop their learning throughout their course of study. The module will cover literature reviews, creative practice research methodologies and practice-led research, as well as critical and scholarly approaches to analysis, quantitative and qualitative approaches including laboratory evaluation, surveys, case studies and action research. Students will be given techniques in methods of collaborative and cooperative working as well as systems of the development of creative ideas and research. Assessment is by critical commentary and group presentation.

Assessment is by critical commentary and group presentation.
  • CT 7002 Advanced Projects (i)The module consists of at least two negotiated industrial placements or internships with national or international partners. The placements will be of substantial duration and challenge. Students will work either individually or as part of a team, sometimes in a leadership role, to meet the requirements of enterprise partners in the digital and creative technology sectors. Students are expected to identify and negotiate with partners from a preferred list, and to self-direct, manage and organise their projects and placements. Tutorial support will be provided to assist the student in planning and negotiation, and to give critical feedback during the preparation of the project reports.CT 7003 Emerging Technologies (i)This module aims to develop students' knowledge of, and to provide hands-on practical engagement with, emerging creative technologies. These include cutting-edge developments in hardware, software and communications as appropriate. Significant input to the module is provided by enterprise partners working in creative technology research and development. Assessment is by critical analysis and seminar presentation.CT 7004 Research Project (i)This module will give students a practical understanding of the different methods of undertaking, disseminating, and presenting research projects in creative technologies, as well as practical experience in presenting their research to an audience. The module also aims to encourage students to think about how their own creative technologies work is best communicated to a range of different audiences, ranging from academics, industry specialists and the general public. The module will consist of a series of taught lectures followed by tutorial support, while students will work towards an assessed presentation of their own research.
