Bournemouth University

Design and Engineering

The CDE's mission is to train the next generation of leaders in the computer animation, games and visual effects industries, with investment in tune to the value of £20 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and our industry partners to achieve this goal. If you join this programme, you will leave after four years with either an Engineering or Professional Doctorate, which will depend on whether you have a technical or artistic focus, as well as invaluable high-level industry experience. The Doctor of Engineering Digital Media (EngD) is the most appropriate route for technical research. The Doctor of Professional Practice Digital Media (DProf) is a suitable pathway for research more explicitly focused on creative or managerial areas.
