School of Computing, Creative Technologies & Engineering


Data will continue to transform the modern world

Our School of Computing, Creative Technologies & Engineering – with its diversity of courses and subjects – has at its heart the recognition that data will continue to transform the modern world. It’s about understanding, innovating and designing solutions to tackle the societal wants and needs of today and of tomorrow; be it the drive to invent ever more immersive games to the emergent challenges arising from AI and robotics. This School aims to produce the technology and the systems that make the digital economy work, and the digital economy secure.

We want you to have a real world impact, to explore the human applications of various areas of expertise, and to feed off the opportunities this dynamic city and region have to offer; and to do this in partnership with our team of respected practitioners and researchers, an academic community that aims to fuse the creative with the technical. From the exploration of green information technology to advanced data analysis; to ethical hacking and programming innovations in assistive technology. This is a school where innovative research is helping us to forge ever deeper links with professional organisations like the police and health service, as well as other sector bodies.

All of our courses are focused on you and your learning needs, rooted in practice-based, industry-oriented and collaborative learning. Our aim is to foster your creative and technological skills, as well as your ability to be expansive, independent and imaginative thinkers and doers. And you 'do' from day one: from working with ITV to broadcast the England Women’s Hockey semi-finals; to gaming innovations that have won a plethora of Game Republic awards; and the opportunity to participate in our annual showcase to industry high fliers.

The strength of our offer is also rooted in our state-of-the art facilities and equipment which allow us to ignite your understanding and passion for interwoven, end-to-end digital ecosystems – from content to games to systems to networks.

We are delighted to welcome curious and self-motivated multi-taskers, keen to take advantage of our unique societies, industrial placement opportunities and meaningful internships and apprenticeships. Students keen to learn the skills that will shape them, excite them and prepare them for the real world of transformational work.
