    Computing with Multimedia, BSc Hons
  • Course description
    Over the last decade the multimedia and entertainment sector, including web design and development and computer games, has grown into a multi-billion dollar global industry employing thousands of computer programmers, designers and multimedia specialists.

    Looking at the requirements of the multimedia industry, it becomes clear that although traditional programming expertise is still needed, the industry requires a new range of skills including an understanding of user interfaces, user requirements, graphics, animation and virtual reality, together with a proficiency in audio and video production techniques that traditional computer science graduates lack.

    This programme helps students to understand the fundamentals of software development, computer systems and multimedia development. Students also develop skills in related technologies such as user interfaces, graphics and audio-visual production techniques.
