DEGREE CURRICULUM

This Major combines core courses offered by the School of Creative Media and the Department of Computer Science, providing students with a solid background in both areas.

Computer Science courses cover topics such as computer programming, data structures, database systems, applied algorithm, software engineering principles and practices, computer graphics, and AI game programming. These courses will equip students with a solid background in computer science and programming, which will enable them to develop software for the media industry. 

Creative Media courses cover topics such as computer animation, computer games, visual communication, installation, interactivity and industry internship. These courses provide students with a good understanding of the creative process and the ability to produce contents for digital media projects. 

Through courses and final-year projects, students have ample opportunities to practise their technical and creative skills, work in teams, and develop interesting digital media projects.
