Computer Graphic Design (2018)

Computer Graphic Design papers provide a specialised programme of study in computer graphic design, a creative process that utilises art and technology to communicate ideas. The papers offered comprise a core of basic design material and skills, together with contemporary computer software understanding and a context of design history and liberal arts.

Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Computer Graphic Design specified programme, Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Faculty of Computing and Mathematical Sciences for programme advice.
