Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Digital media practitioners are the architects and implementers of the technological revolution in digital media and are in great demand throughout industry, commerce and the public sector.

Our Digital Media courses combine computer technology and creative design skills by integrating aspects of IT, media, design and communication.

Brunel’s Digital Design BSc is a unique, multidisciplinary degree focusing on the intersection of the arts and sciences – a place where ground'breaking ideas and new forms of creativity can be generated. The course combines digital technology and creative design to provide an intellectually and creatively challenging programme with strong emphasis on practical work. You’ll be taught and assessed in a variety of ways. These include written, practical and creative design assignments, studio work, case studies, presentations and live industry briefs.

If you opt for a sandwich course, you’ll go on a year’s industrial placement supported by our on'campus Professional Development Centre. The placements benefit from our location close to central London, the heart of the UK’s digital media industry. Placements are highly valued by employers and our placement partners include Coca'Cola Enterprises, Walt Disney, Canon, Microsoft, EMI Music, IBM Laboratories, Ministry of Sound, Amazon, Wellcome Trust and Goodwood Sculpture Park. Many of our students are offered jobs with their placement companies on graduation. Our graduates go on to work in design, development, marketing and management positions across the world. They have roles as information architects, motion graphics designers, web designers/developers, digital managers, user'experience architects, 3D graphic artists, eCommerce developers, videographics content designers, multimedia consultants, game designer/developers and educational developers. Many graduates become self'employed, either as freelance designers or by setting up their own companies.
