Creative Computing, MA*

Develop data processing and responsive, interactive design.

The Creative Computing Master’s is a graduate course that focuses on the significance of data and coding in digital design and computational art. The program places an emphasis on a research based and critique driven understanding and integration of data technologies. Students will assess their utility in mediating human experiences in digital ecosystems and creative processes that drive socially meaningful outcomes that address pressing issues.  

The program is a practice-led course that covers data visualization and generative design and how the two synergistically operate in commercial applications such as data driven interface design, information dashboards, and their role in DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service)and SaaS (Software as a Service) platforms. In addition to the commercial realm, creative technology skills provide a world of opportunity for students to develop their own computation driven design and art practices.

* Accreditation in preparation due to new master reform.

Graduates of the Creative Computing Master’s are uniquely positioned to occupy a number of niche positions in design culture – both commercial and artistic. Data visualization is one of the most forward-facing design specialism that exists today.

There is an increasing demand for user interface designers who can integrate data pipelines into generative components of application interfaces. This demand will only increase in the future due to the all-pervasive nature of data ecosystems and the increased time we spend on mobile devices. Graduates of the program will be uniquely positioned to capitalize on this need in the industry.

At UE you’ll have the unique opportunity to bring your design skills to a vibrant multicultural and interdisciplinary environment.
