What Is This Programme About?

The focus of the Digital Media (Media IT) programme is on the production and management of electronic content. Students are trained as computer scientists with an additional qualification in digital media. The programme focuses on the field of audiovisual and interactive media (2D and 3D), for example advertising material, interactive multimedia product presentations or e-learning content.

Why Choose This Programme?

Anyone interested in studying Digital Media (Media IT) should enjoy mathematics, logical reasoning and be creative when it comes to interactive systems design. The ability to work in a team, flexibility and social skills are other important qualities, as projects are almost always conducted in teams. A good level of English is an advantage for studying the specialist literature, which is mainly in English. No previous knowledge in the field of computer science is required. All basic principles are taught in the first semesters.

How is the programme structured?

During the programme we help you to develop a sound knowledge of computer science and specialist knowledge in the field of digital media. In the course of the programme you have the opportunity to study areas of digital media that interest you most in more depth by taking compulsory elective subjects. In the final semester you initially complete a practical placement in a company or an institution and subsequently write your final thesis. Teaching is supplemented at all stages of the programme by laboratory exercises, practicals and project work. Some additional courses are run in conjunction with practitioners, which enables students to put the theory they have learned directly into practice.

Where does it lead?

This fast-paced and practice-based study programme offers exceptionally good career opportunities in diverse fields, especially at the interface between computer scientists, customers and the media industry. Graduates of the programme often work in multimedia, marketing, advertising and PR agencies, software companies (in software development), publishing houses, electronic media (radio, TV), and company IT, PR and marketing departments.
