This major produces creative media professionals proficient in computing technology. Students also gain a solid foundation in the creative processes, including video, sound, photography, storytelling, game design, animation, computer graphics, installation, and interactive digital media production.
The Major combines core courses from the School of Creative Media and the Department of Computer Science to produce graduates who are able to bridge the gap between the technical and artistic sides of the media field. Graduates will be capable of using the latest computing and media technologies in the creation of various media including computer games, animation, special effects, sound, wireless and mobile media, internet application and interactive installation.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements.
For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma in a relevant discipline with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award.
Applicants may be invited to attend an interview and/or other assessment processes so that SCM can gauge their creative potential. All direct applicants for SCM programmes (1041/1042/1043/1044/1456A/1468A/1471A)are strongly encouraged to submit a portfolio of creative work via an online system to the School of Creative Media. Please refer to the School’s portfolio web page for the most up-to-date submission deadlines and specifications for the portfolio. Portfolio materials may include still photography, paintings/drawings, sculptures, musical compositions/performances, films/videos, software, multimedia productions, academic or creative writing, science projects or other forms of imaginative activity.
Consideration may be given to employment records, travel and other examples of life experience.

This Major is ideal for students with a strong technical background and who are also interested in creative media. Graduates will be qualified to work in a wide range of digital media companies, in areas including computer animation, special effects, computer games, internet-based media and mobile media. Graduates will be part of creative teams and contribute to both the technical and creative aspects of media projects. With a solid background in both technical and creative elements, our graduates will be ideal candidates for future management positions.
