Human-Centred and Creative Computing Specialisation

The Human-Centred and Creative Computing specialisation offers an interdisciplinary grounding in human-computer interaction, humanities-centred computing, and creative computing, including games, music, or graphics. This specialisation is where computing meets a complex world with unique and varied social contexts to create impacts that change and enrich our lives. Students will gain insight and skills in designing, developing, and evaluating human-centred and creative applications. They will apply these skills to new and emerging technologies and recent developments in the field.
