Course benefits from the expertise of highly research-active academic staff within the School of Computing Sciences in areas such as computer graphics, speech and audio processing and computer vision. This degree allows you to combine interests in computer graphics, video and sound processing and computing science.
This course combines the study of computing science with specialist topics in computer graphics, as you initially cover two and three dimensional graphics fundamentals and continue to develop your skills and knowledge throughout the course.
During the degree you will gain first-hand experience in a variety of computing subjects, including real time simulation, rendering techniques, art content and collision detection. You will learn about graphics processing performance and how to exploit the power of modern GPUs using shading languages.
The course will be taught by our academics, utilising their expertise in computer graphics, computer games development, speech and audio processing and computer vision to enhance your learning. You will also benefit from additional teaching by professional film, video and TV producers based within Film, Television and Media Studies. We have strong links with many related imaging and multimedia companies and we use these contacts to help us to shape the degree content, designing coursework projects based on real-world problems.
In the final year you will have the opportunity to conduct an extended, independent research project in computer graphics, on a topic of your own choice. Previous practical assignments include the development of three dimensional flight simulators and vehicle racing games, enhancing the realism of virtual environments with shaders, and creating a realistic simulation of smoke.
