The M.Sc. in Interactive Digital Media (formerly called M.Sc in Multimedia Systems) has been running since 1996. Each year, 20 students are selected from different backgrounds to receive a foundation in the theory and practice of creating and developing applications using all digital media types. The programme presents courses in Interactive Narrative, Graphic Design, Audio and Video Technologies in combination with Introduction to Computer Science and Client and Server Programming Technologies and Platforms.

This M.Sc. is different in that it focuses on teaching theory rather than applications. Students are exposed to programming languages and platforms as well as methodologies for the creation, capture and presentation of text, graphics, audio and moving images.Basic computer science courses are offered for students with no formal background in programming and students with experience in programming are taught specialized programming methodologies for interactive digital platforms.

We are now closed for applications for the academic commencing September 2016/17.
