Designers have been using digital tools for many years; but most of these tools imitate traditional techniques such as drafting and layout. Increasingly, innovation in design is a result of using computers to do things that only computers can do.
This is digital design: a practice that engages deeply with digital processes, digital materials, and digital contexts.
Digital designers need to understand the fundamental elements of computing - data and algorithm - and work directly with them to create new processes, forms and practices.
The Master of Digital Design is a creative, studio-based program that will ground students in the fundamentals of digital design, introduce them to its principles and practice, and encourage them to apply new knowledge in their own specialist field.
Students who complete this course with merit may continue to the Master of Digital Design (Honours), which extends this course into practice-led research, and offers a pathway to further research study.
