What is this programme about

Opening up new horizons in new media

You will be trained to become a multimedia professional, setting the tone in a world of interactive media and digital communication. Push the boundaries of your own abilities and grasp the opportunities given to you at the start of an exciting and successful career.

Professionals in the world of multimedia and communication

Communication and Multimedia Design professionals are creative problem-solvers in the world of interactive media. They are able to develop and grow with the very latest trends in the field of communication in digital media, and are always in search of new possibilities and applications. The transformation of an information society into a communication society demands communication specialists who are able to identify the needs of present-day society and translate these into interactive media solutions.

Human-centred design as the starting point

Convenience and accessibility are the preconditions for developing communication solutions for new media. As a professional, you will start from the human-centred design approach. During the creative design process, you will think and act on the basis of the behaviour, the needs, and the wishes of the media user. Based on these requirements, you will design a concept by making the link between multimedia (text, photography, video, audio, and animation) and interactive applications. At all times, it is the experience of the end user which is central to this process. The possibilities presented by technology serve the needs and wishes of this end user.

Profiles and specializations

Two final-year profiles

During the main phase of the course, you can select a specialization and profile. Depending on your own ambitions, talents, and skills, halfway through the second year you can opt for one of the two final-year profiles:

  • interaction design
  • multimedia design

And later...

The future prospects for graduates are extremely favourable. Most professionals who have recently graduated work in the dynamic world of the creative and media industry. You may find a job as an interaction designer, user experience designer, multimedia designer, web designer, front-end developer, project manager, or art director. An increasing number of our graduates are starting their own business or are working as freelancers.
