Design and Digital Media - MSc


Course Description

Programme description

This is a unique programme of study that addresses the growing need for professional education in digital technology applied to design, including its social, cultural and philosophical implications.

Based in a lively studio environment, the programme develops wide skills in digital techniques and a critical framework to appraise the application of these technologies to design.

The programme addresses the needs of practitioners, managers, decision-makers and educators who want to be informed by first-hand knowledge of the technical possibilities of digital technology and an awareness of social, cultural and business contexts.

Programme structure

Teaching is through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical sessions and studios. Projects encourage original thinking and independent achievement within a framework of team-working and creative ability.

Learning outcomes

Students will:

  • acquire a broadly based foundation in design technologies
  • develop their ability to work cooperatively in groups in the context of design
  • develop understanding of the potential for new technologies and their new creative uses
  • enable the use of existing digital design techniques in a creative way
  • develop skills in entrepreneurial thinking and business planning
  • find an analytical and critical framework to develop fresh thinking in design

Career opportunities

The prospects for employment are diverse. Recent graduates are now working in multimedia and web design for architectural and urban design practices, computer system design and management, and tertiary-level teaching. The programme is also ideal if you are considering continuing on to advanced research at a doctoral level.
