Why study the Bachelor of Multimedia Design?

The Bachelor of Multimedia Design is a studio-based program providing students with the knowledge and skills to become the designers, architects and implementers of highly sophisticated multimedia projects. Whether it is building a corporate presence on the web or designing new formats for interactive television, multimedia design is central to creatively engaging an audience.

The major focus of the program is on the integration of theory and technology and their practical application in design projects. Areas include animation, graphic design, sound production, 3D modelling, internet authoring, game design and interactive media design. An important feature of the program is its focus on teamwork and team projects undertaken in a studio environment. You can also gain credit for industrial certification courses licensed by major commercial software developers.

What you can study

During the program students build a portfolio of many different projects and often undertake projects with industry based clients. In particular, final year students have the opportunity for advanced study and research projects with significant industry partners through UQ participation in the Australasian Cooperative Research Centre for Interaction Design (ACID) which is investigating new forms of human interaction with emerging technologies.

Graduates are in demand within the education, arts and commercial industries, which want to engage audiences, and demand for this level of expertise is increasing worldwide.
