The MA/MSc Computational Design opens up for the possibilities of computer programming within a research lead context for the creative industries. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Design 2017. The MA/MSc Computational Design opens up for the possibilities of computer programming within a research lead context for the creative industries. This postgraduate degree course is positioned and seeks to assist you to engage with the huge wave of interest in the open source communities surrounding the coding developments such as openFrameworks, Arduino, Processing and Cinder. These freely available libraries of code and hardware bring the power of computing and interaction to a much wider base of creative users and you will immediately see the imaginative potential that they offer. Instruction in visual programming with Max/Msp, Pure Data and VVV may also be offered. You will be shown examples of projects that make use of such devices such as the Kinect, Leap Motion and motion capture. Project work will offer opportunities to put this knowledge into practice in order to propose inventive solutions that respond to the movement of the human figure. The combination of data drawn from the position of the figure and a three dimensional virtual environment has opened up a fascinating discussion about the nature of human choreographic gesture and the way it can have a simultaneous effect both in the digital and real world domains. Quadrocopters, robotics and the control of kinetic movements will come within the research focus of the course offering you a wide variety of possible outcomes. Ravensbourne has a very well resourced rapid prototyping facility and students on the MA/MSC Computational Design will have the opportunity to combine programming, three dimensional design and electronics to as a basis for proposing innovative, responsive and exciting projects.
