Top-notch design programmes
AS technology gets more sophisticated, this brings forth a robust, fast-paced and ever-changing digital era which sees the world being hooked to their mobile platforms.
The demand for digital content and digital experience has grown tremendously to provide for a target audience with an increasingly short attention span and a busy lifestyle.
Recognising this, The One Academy, one of the world’s best art and design colleges, offers advanced, industry-driven digital media design courses at both degree and diploma levels.
At a more practical level, students are offered the Diploma in Multimedia with Digital Media and Interactive Design where they immerse into the media revolution through comprehension of curriculum with emphasis of development of computer graphics and software technology, including the creative process.
In aiding the understanding of nature and basics, students’ skills will be put to practice through real industry projects. They will develop extensive knowledge in computer technology, aesthetic sense and creative ability while keeping in mind the endless possibilities in the digital multimedia field.
On the other hand, students who meet basic minimum requirements and want a more advanced or specialised challenge could opt for BA (Hons) Digital Media Design, a degree level programme offered by The One Academy in partnership with the topnotch University of Hertfordshire from the UK, which has offered 150 years of excellent quality UK education and recently ranked one of The Best Creative Schools in The World in 2017 by The Rookies.
Students taking up this advanced UK degree need not do so overseas as it can be done right here in Malaysia, saving other costs such as transportation, food, accommodation and other living expenses usually incurred while studying abroad.
In the degree course, students get to learn more in-depth skills, tools and processes needed to create digital images, video, animation and sound while studying the making of interactive media through subjects such as Content Management for Network and Mobile Media and 2D Animation and Video Practices.
At the end of the day, these courses place students at the heart of the experience and focus on design and content creation in areas such as mobile apps, games, websites, interactive installations, next generation advertising and social media.
Therefore, students are exposed to the latest design practice and forthcoming media technology and innovation to stay relevant to the industry.
