Design is a vast field. We study the market carefully to identify the basket of skills that will make our students stand out. This is key to arriving to the jobs market with the right in-demand skillset.
We re-examine our modules every year, tweaking, improving, refining. We ruthlessly drop technologies that have lost their shine in the market. We practice what we teach - this web site is built by our own staff.
In 3rd and 4th year, all our students build real working, year-long design projects under careful supervision. We don't limit what you build. Employers prize this individual exposition of students' work.
