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.
This master’s program develops hard skills like data processing and analysis, code and object based interactive design. Critical and speculative design approaches will be covered to boost the student’s confidence to develop incisive and future forward applications. Project oriented modules will allow students to develop data driven creative outcomes in response to speculative and real-world briefs. Theory oriented modules will focus on relationship between technology and culture to provide an understand of the social needs that drive technological innovation and, crucially, an understanding of how technology can be leveraged for social good to solve pressing societal issues.
Graduates of the MA in 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 University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE), you’ll have the unique opportunity to bring your design skills to a vibrant multicultural and interdisciplinary environment.
The University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) is accredited by the state, has received multiple awards and is a worldwide leader among universities with an international approach.
Here you study in small courses, so you get individual support and personal contact to our professors. All of our lecturers are successful experts in the world of art and design.
Besides the theory your studies contain practical projects. Interdisciplinary courses enable you to determine the content of your studies. Our campus offers state-of-the-art-equipment, including photo studios, darkrooms, Mac pools, and more. Voluntary excursions give you the chance to see New York, Iceland, Vietnam, Paris and other destinations and work on your skills there.
Graduates with information and data visualization skills will be equipped to pursue positions that specialize in this field, servicing clients from private enterprise to media.
Information visualization skills are also highly praised in journalism, multinational companies and social development agencies. Generative coding skills are at the vanguard of visual design and graduates often take up positions in advertising agencies, specialized digital studios and the film industry.
We put emphasis on internationality. That is why we were ranked among the top 25 performers in student mobility and international orientation worldwide (U-Multirank 2018). Our numerous international students come from all over the world to pursue a highly valued (state and ZEvA recognised) German degree that is entirely taught in English.
Germany, known as the country of innovators, is the perfect place to get your degree. Germany is a particularly safe and livable country with relatively low tuition fees and affordable living costs.
That's why we encourage international students to come here and study with us. You can apply with your national school degree now. We will then take a look at your application and guide you through the process.
As a private university, we are funded not by the state, but by tuition fees. For this reason, studying at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) costs more than at a public university. But it’s worth it: University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) graduates meet essential requirements of design, and this sets them apart from the graduates of many public universities. Your employment and earnings prospects are greatly improved.
All costs are included in the monthly tuition fee.
We are happy to provide you with information on funding your studies and on any available scholarships. If you have any further questions, our Student Admissions Office can provide you with detailed information. Find useful information on Master's funding on this website.
You can apply a year in advance for the winter semester.
A complete application will include the following:
The admission procedure includes an approximately 45-minute personal interview and the review of your proposal and portfolio. Your knowledge of English will be tested in the interview.
