Interested in digital media coursework (animation, games, social networking tools, education tools, etc.) in your program? This could be just what you are looking for: A collaborative directed studies program involving SFU Computing Science, UBC Computer Science, and the Centre for Digital Media.
Your team will have dedicated design space at the Centre for Digital Media and access to its extensive resources, including experts in interactive digital media design and the agile design process; a library of movies, games, and texts; a green-screen room; a 3-D printer; and more. As a SFU or UBC CS student, you will of course also continue to have access to resources at your home university. You'll be mentored by a faculty member at the Centre for Digital Media and a faculty member in your home department at SFU or UBC.
The project will require a substantial investment of time and energy. If you think you may need to withdraw, DO NOT SIGN UP. Your teammates will be graduate students registered in a required 12-credit project course in their Masters program and so they will be working essentially full-time on the project. You will be in a six-credit course, so working about half-time. Your role within the project will be crucial to the team's success.
It will be a ton of work, a ton of fun, a great learning opportunity, a fabulous way to network, and a fascinating and impressive entry in your portfolio.
