Combining creative design skills with a high level of technical ability ensures that employers are gaining the graduates they require to take their companies to the next level. The course will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills to start with a client brief and take your design concepts through to practical implementation. The four main themes of design, human computer interaction, web and multimedia running throughout this degree are underpinned by technical and professional skills. The themes provide you with the ability to work in 2D and 3D environments, program for interaction with traditional computer interfaces or via gestural and whole body interaction and work with the latest mobile technologies. There is a strong emphasis on providing real life experience by introducing client based projects from the second year onwards as part of the course. Students are encouraged to critically evaluate their work and collate all their creative artefacts; these form a demonstrable portfolio of work which is an integral part of the course. The portfolio becomes a tangible on-going record of the student's achievements and improves employability.
