4 Computer science reviews at University of the West of Scotland (UWS)
Computer Animation with Digital Art, BA Hons
I beg of you not to enter into the computer animation arts course here. It absolutely awful. They teach you next to no actual animation, its all about modelling and lighting, amongst other useless classes. Most of the tutors are really lazy and incompetent. On one memorable occasion, we were given an annonymous review form, and when i brought up my concerns they were read out at the front of class, and there was a witch hunt to find out who wrote it. The class were encouraged to make fun of the comments left. The tutors leave halfway through class for coffee and don't come back until the end so if you're stuck you'll remain that way. I asked for help with my computer not working and was shamed embarrassingly in front of the class and told to fix it myself. I'm staying until I get my honours then I'm off. This has tainted animation and the whole industry for life. I cant wait to see the back of it.
Digital Art, BA Hons
The course is made up of scientific research methodologies which have module codes for performing arts which is nothing to do with digital art and design, the only art or design based module is creative coding which is very mathematically oriented and the software used isn't industry standard and having a career path in graphic design is useless to me as it is very time consuming and difficult to grasp.
Computer Networking, BSc Hons
There is nothing of value in this course. I will be forced to get an apprenticeship to actually learn something of value in the workplace. This is even said in class; "you need to get started with looking for an apprenticeship straight away in January". Currently studying a course that will be depreciated next year. An absolute joke.
