Course Structure

Stage 1: Foundations
Develop technical skills and knowledge in emerging technologies including ARVR, Scripting and microcontroller programming, and development.
The aim of this unit is to prototype and produce a functionally complete 3D printed, internet-enabled product destined for the
Internet of Things(IoT) marketplace.

Topics include:
- 3D modeling and printing
- Scripting (Arduino, MCU Lua etc.)
- Micro-controller units
- Electronics and MCU modular construction
The aim of this module is to research and investigate the tools, techniques and technologies required to plan and execute a 3D printed, internet-enabled product, destined for the Internet of Things marketplace.

Topics include:
- Arduino
- Scripting
- MCUs
- 3D Printing and considerations
This unit will introduce the theory and practice of Virtual Reality application development within your existing development practice. You will be examining the existing practices, precedents, and frameworks of virtual reality applications. You will devise and develop a project-based prototype application to create a virtual reality environment and experiences. A project-based introduction to common code libraries, tracking systems, and gestural control will provide you with a platform to explore potential applications in immersive entertainment and training simulations.
Augmented reality integrates visual information via projection into the world, thus allowing computer graphics to escape the limits of the traditional screen, and users to interact with data in a situated, spatial manner. An emerging technology, it has commercial applications in education, medicine and manufacturing. This unit will introduce the theory and practice of Augmented Reality application development within your existing development practice. A project-based introduction to common code libraries, tracking systems, and gestural control will provide you with a platform to explore potential applications in entertainment and educational games, particularly in the mobile space.
You will be introduced to a wide variety of concepts, theories and practical techniques relevant to scripting/programming. In particular, you will learn to apply industry best practices to the design and development of programs to solve a diverse range of problems. In this unit you will learn object oriented programming techniques and how to apply them to build game systems that can scale from small to medium sized games.
You will be introduced to a wide variety of concepts, theories and practical techniques relevant to scripting/programming. In this unit, you will learn how to analyse a brief and identify the requirements outlined in the brief. You will learn how to design and then implement a code-based solution to meet those requirements using industry best practices. In implementing the code-based solution you will learn how to extend and combine procedural programming techniques to solve complex problems.
In this module, you extend your ability to apply a quality process to the development of a creative media project in an online environment. Variously described as virtual or distributed teams projects, you will be developing your skills in remote practice. You will create iterative elements that are accountable to an agreed targeted brief. You will demonstrate how all stages of a creative production, from concept to delivery and reflection, can be achieved in an entirely online context.
