Design and information technology are strongly complementary fields. Together, they provide a powerful combination of highly valuable skills and knowledge.
You might combine a specialisation in Communication Design with a Multimedia Development major in Information Technology adding to the strength and relevance of each. You might focus your Industrial Design on the creation of 'smart' products and sophisticated interactive tools, or the next generation of gaming devices or wearable technologies.
This combination of creativity and cutting edge technology will challenge you to link your lateral thinking and problem-solving skills. It will help you to create innovative products and compelling imagery using the latest technologies.
This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation in Design, you will be awarded either:
- the Bachelor of Communication Design, or
- the Bachelor of Industrial Design,
- the Bachelor of Information Technology (majoring in Software Development, Multimedia Development or Games Development).
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Design/Bachelor of Information Technology) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work
Our way of life is strongly influenced by the sophisticated products and imagery that help us to connect. Communication design industries now expect graduates to be skilled across many media and ways of thinking. In addition, designers and developers of new games, multimedia and software can take advantage of the roles and developed skills in the design disciplines. Branding, typography and illustration, as well as industrial design products, offer new approaches and fresh ideas through their translation to the digital space.
