Year 3 (Optional Year in Industry)
The Diploma in Professional Studies is an optional placement year in industry between the second and third year of the course. It is a managed year of professional experience, largely undertaken in the design profession in a variety of national and international locations.
Successful candidates are selected on a competitive basis from academic performance and studentship, successful completion of the DPS bridging studies and by portfolio and proposal.
Year 3 / 4
In your final year you will explore computational approaches to machine intelligence and the ethical implications of such technologies. Alongside this you will develop creative project work using machine intelligence frameworks and have the opportunity to develop a self directed graduation project that brings together the skills and expertise you have gained throughout the course.
