Swinburne Design courses offer students a broad and coherent body of knowledge in the area of multimedia design. Our courses combine theory and practice for various problem-solving applications used in the creative media industry. Students will be trained to understand how to utilize the design process to harness their creative and problem solving skills. Students will also be familiarized with a wide array of industry-relevant technical skills in order to work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams. Throughout the course students will have the opportunity to work on industry- relevant projects.
The course provides students with a strong foundation of necessary academic and communication skills, knowledge and technical skills in the Design stream. It serves as a pathway to direct entry to the Sarawak campus and to specific undergraduate courses at the Australian campuses.
With further studies, graduates may become equipped for careers in areas such as communication design (graphic design), digital media design (multimedia design), film and television, interior design and industrial design.
