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 engage in a number of 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.
You will have access to the latest industry-standard equipment and software, and the skills you develop will be directly transferable to employment opportunities within the hi-tech and creative digital sectors. Throughout this programme you will be encouraged to develop a critical and reflective approach to your own practice, enabling you to adapt and grow as a digital practitioner.
