This foundation degree has been designed to provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable you to play a significant role in the rapidly expanding creative and digital industries. Combining traditional design practice with a strong digital skill set, you will work on a range of engaging and innovative projects that will allow you to develop your creative and artistic design skills. During your studies you will consider a variety of production practices, including 3D design, rapid prototyping and interactive design. You will work in both the physical and digital realms, combining these techniques to create designs in areas such as wearable technology and the Internet of Things, (IoT). You will have the opportunity to engage in external live brief projects, working with a range of employers within the region, allowing you to put the skills you develop as a part of your foundation degree into practice. Level 4 (Year 1 for full-time students) develops the underpinning knowledge and principles associated with creative digital design. Level 5 (Year 2 for full-time students) develops the foundations of understanding from Level 4 to support with the progression of more critical thinking skills such as analysing the impacts of the creative digital design industry including future trends and opportunities. You’ll be learning in our visionary and innovative Hi Tech & Digital Centre, a world-class facility.
