Digital Media Design

Here at Plymouth, we've been leading the way for over 20 years, building one of the most established interactive media courses in Europe - BSc/BA (Hons) Digital Media Design (was Digital Art and Technology) - the programme's unusual mix of art, design and technology is underpinned by the expertise of computer scientists, electronic engineers and artificial intelligence researchers. 

This fast-paced industry encompasses a wide range of people and organisations from web design companies to games production houses, digital television producers to art galleries and museums, and mobile communication developers to researchers. A common theme running through the industry is a requirement for innovative, interdisciplinary practitioners with strong technical and imaginative ideas; for those bright individuals rewarding careers await.

Sometimes very artistic, other times very industrially orientated, the work of students and graduates has always been imaginative and thought provoking. Our digital media design students are able to operate at the technical depth that industry demands, alongside a creative insight that generates innovative solutions. Our specialist undergraduate courses, all designed to challenge, work alongside each other sharing the common philosophy of preparing our students for the workplace.
