The Course

Summary

This course builds on our original Multimedia Design and Technology BSc – recognised as one of the first and most successful creative digital design courses in the UK. This course focuses on the intersection of the arts and sciences. As a result of this vivid interaction, a stream of new ideas and new forms of creativity can be generated. Our courses combine ideas from digital technologies with those of creative design. This is an intensive, intellectually and creatively challenging programme with a very strong practical component. It is focused on giving you the knowledge and practical and analytical skills to prepare you for employment in creative roles within the digital industry.

The Digital Design programme aims to produce graduates who can make an immediate contribution to the digital media revolution, whether as employees, freelancers or entrepreneurs. You should be someone who appreciates the role of communication in human life; takes pride and care in how you organise and present your work, and is fascinated by technology and its creative potential. This degree is right for you if you are creative, intelligent and ambitious, and if you want to be part of the digital information age. The course assumes no specific educational subject background, but does require an interest in IT combined with creative design flair.

Previous students have become information architects, motion graphics designers, user experience architects, web designers/developers and digital managers. Companies which have employed Brunel Digital Design graduates include Warner Bros, Sky, BBC, Dare Digital, Lightmaker and IBM. Many work for highly creative, digital agencies with quite small employee numbers, while others work for departments within larger corporations. A number of students work freelance or have founded their own companies.

You have the opportunity to undertake high quality work placements within prestigious organisations such as Warner Bros, Canon, Lightmaker, Dolby, Samsung, and Hewlett Packard. The fact that such companies repeatedly approach us with student placement opportunities is testament to the technical skill levels and professionalism we work to instil in our students. Increasingly, students may also select smaller companies to obtain a more flexible placement position, where they may have an even greater range of opportunities for professional development, including taking on bigger responsibilities and potential leadership roles within the company. The course offers students many career options, and we have one of the strongest track records within the University for graduates finding employment in the same sector as their degree. There is a relaxed and friendly relationship between students and staff, and we take a genuine interest and pride in the success of our students and graduates. This, together with acknowledged high quality teaching and resources, results in an excellent record of employment amongst our graduates.
