About the Program

As a Digital Media student, you will devise and use tools to create engaging, interactive digital objects and experiences that integrate imagery and sound, including effects and animation, 3D modelling and simulation, and responsive interfaces bridging the physical and virtual world.

You will also study larger concepts like aesthetic theories and the cultural impact of media as a catalyst for artistic, social and industrial evolution. Most importantly, you will learn to simulate, build and create.

You will begin the program by completing a common core of courses in first year. You will then select from one of three streams based on your interest.

Digital Media Development focusing on design of core tools and technologies for digital media practices.

Digital Media Arts focusing on the creation and application of digital media for creative production in the visual, performing and screen arts. 

Digital Media Game Arts focusing on allied artistic and scientific aspects of innovative game design.

We offer courses in a range of subjects, for example, virtual reality user interfaces, graphics, games and animation.
