About Creative Computing at University for the Creative Arts

Creative computing is at the heart of digital technology – driving every interaction we have with our smart devices, interactive spaces, and immersive entertainment, bringing exciting and untold possibilities to the world of design.

Our BA (Hons) Creative Computing course will enable you to create and shape the world around you for architectural design, TV studios, gaming, app design and more.

Through a unique blend of cutting-edge digital research, designing and making, you’ll develop your skills and understanding of coding languages, design tools and the interactive arts.

You’ll gain an understanding of the designer’s role in society and learn how creative coding can work as a catalyst for change in one of the fastest growing sectors of the global economy.

Employers often comment on the breadth of skills that UCA graduates offer – you’ll be working alongside artists, architects and coders to develop a great balance of rigour, expertise and imagination. You’ll be able to critically evaluate and learn the secret to great design, preparing you for career opportunities in fields such as interaction and experience design, as well as broader digital entertainment, internet-of-things, and software development.

As part of our School of Architecture, you’ll benefit from our teaching staff’s broad knowledge and experience in making, fabricating and spatial thinking.

With a growing network of industry contacts that include London-based creative technology studio The Workers and interactive studio Running In The Halls, as well as games design giants like SONY Interactive Entertainment Europe and Rockstar North, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from and work with some of the biggest experts on creative coding.

You’ll gain valuable skills in creative thinking and communication, and explore the structure and vocabulary of contemporary programming languages. We’ll give you ample opportunity to put your learning into practice and you’ll develop an understanding of design processes and business management.

With our academic and technical staff offering their expert support, you’ll explore different technology and coding techniques to understand where your strengths lie, whilst also having access to state-of-the-art technology – including room scale, multiuser VR and tracking equipment, as well as laser cutters, 3D printers and small scale robotics through our FabLAB and TrakLAB.

You’ll be encouraged to collaborate, socialise and share ideas with our unique community of creative students and our renowned teaching team of industry-experienced professionals.
