Bachelor Media & Interaction Design

Successfully bridging several disciplines around visual communication, this training is designed for students with a solid visual culture eager to find out more about advanced technology. Prospective, pragmatic and experimental, this Bachelor course is provided in the framework of the Visual Communication Department, which concurrently offers crossover courses and projects enabling students to acquire multidisciplinary skills (photography, graphic design, film).

Through courses and workshops provided by major actors on the international scene, the students become seasoned in the various fields of this discipline – art direction, interaction design, interactive applications (web and mobile), installations, motion design, as well as communication and digital identity. Involvement in exhibitions, publications or assignments commissioned by institutions provides an actual immersion into the labour world. The students also benefit from a wide range of theoretical courses and multidisciplinary conferences on the ECAL premises.

The skills and projects acquired throughout the curriculum serve to produce a portfolio in line with the highest standards. From website design to event management, via animation or modelling, this training offers a wide range of professional opportunities.
