The IOCT Masters in Creative Technologies is a unique creative technologies programme. The course has been carefully designed to support you in developing and strengthening your individual creative technologies practice within the context of the increasingly multi/inter/trans disciplinary environments and collaborative digital world. You'll be part of a diverse and stimulating creative community, based around the purpose-built Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University. This groundbreaking cross-discipline approach pioneered by the IOCT has been described by Jerry Fishenden, National Technology Officer of Microsoft UK, as "a potential blueprint for the next generation of R&D" commenting, "This commitment to bringing together disciplines in new and exciting ways will help develop the UK's reputation as a leader in the creative industries."
The Masters programme will bring together eScience, the Digital Arts and Design and Humanities in a way that will cross traditional disciplines and boundaries, encouraging innovation and developing new modes of collaboration in eScience and digital arts research. The course is broad in range and flexible in structure and is designed to appeal to applicants who wish to study at higher degree level and is equally suitable for those wishing to take Masters as a qualification in itself as well as those thinking of moving on to doctoral research.
