As media companies race to develop new services to meet the demands of the 'ipod generation' and the opportunities provided by the Internet and mobile technology, Anglia Ruskin University is launching a new BSc honours degree in New Media Production Technology.
The degree, which admits its first students in September this year, mixes creativity with the theory and practice involved in applications of the underlying technology. It is designed to produce graduates who have the confidence and ability to engage with and manage at all levels in new media production.
Pathway leader and Senior Lecturer in Media and Internet Technology at the University's department of Design and Technology, Dr Tim Rowsell states:
Specialist areas of study will include live streaming, studio recording, video post-production and effects, DVD production, workshops on commercial software for media production, satellite and mobile technology and commercial skills.
Design and Technology courses offered by the University are continuing to prove attractive to students and employers. Popular courses include Audio & Music Technology, Computer Aided visualization, Computer Gaming and Animation Technology and Internet technology.
