    Digital Media Development BSc Honours


Digital media development is a specialised topic of computer science that focuses on the development of interactive applications that respond to user actions by presenting rich multimedia content using various forms of interaction. The increasing capabilities of the web, high tech devices and mobile technology provide enormous potential for engaging users in innovative ways of interaction with state-of-the-art interfaces. The digital tech industry requires practitioners with good understanding of user experience (UX) principles and good technical competences for developing advanced user interfaces. The Digital Media Development BSc Honours addresses all aspects of the digital media development process, from conceptualisation and design, to implementation and testing with primary focus on front end development.

The programme offers three directions of specialisation:

web application design and development
mobile application design and development
3D user interfaces design and development.
