"My favourite thing about my course is the integration with the School of Architecture, alongside the software, hardware and resources that are available to us. You can collaborate with other courses to create amazing projects. I’m currently working with someone to put his plans into a VR environment." Morgan Ruffell, BSc (Hons) Creative Computing
