UAL Creative Computing Institute

Working at the intersection of creativity and computational technologies

The UAL Creative Computing Institute (CCI) offers innovative new courses, research opportunities and it is a public platform, exploring computer science and creative practice.

We are creating a new space for students, researchers and practitioners to develop advanced creative computing skills and knowledge in areas including:

  • Creativity and machine learning
  • Human computer interaction
  • Big data, social platforms and digital citizenship
  • Computational environments, visualisation and sensing
  • Creative coding and software development for the digital creative industries

Expertise and experience in these areas are in high demand across the digital creative industries. Graduates with these skills can expect to find exciting career opportunities in web and app development, interactive digital experience, smart product development and the internet of things.

The Institute supports interdisciplinary teaching, research and knowledge exchange at the intersection of creativity and computational technologies.

We are part of how UAL explores the technology shaping our world and prepares a new generation of talent to shape it.
