  • Objectives
    The course provides an opportunity to study multimedia applications, acquire multimedia skills and develop an understanding of the issues affecting individuals, organisations and society. It has been designed to take account of business, public administration and consumer needs, and takes an inter-disciplinary approach to identifying and exploiting new opportunities for multimedia systems. We aim to help you understand the issues, develop the skills, and gain the level of understanding of developments in multimedia technology and applications necessary to work effectively in the industry or to progress to PhD research. The course attracts those who wish to move into multimedia, those who seek credibility in a field in which they already find themselves working, or those who seek employment in a fast-moving and developing industry, where there is scope for variety, and potential to be both creative and entrepreneurial.
