A significant milestone was recently achieved in the development of our school with a broader and more encompassing roles and objectives. Recognizing the importance of seamlessly interweaving form and function in today’s consumerized world, our aptly renamed School of Computing and Creative Media (SCM) underscores the integral role that design and media plays in delivering a user experience that can make or break a company’s/organization’s products and services.
First established in June 2014, our school was founded to address the rapidly changing demands of the new industrial landscape by offering a teaching-and-learning experience that can help equip today’s and tomorrow’s professionals with sufficient depth and breadth of technical and management skills. Our programmes’ philosophy focuses on equipping students with the fundamental knowledge and thinking skills to "learning how to learn", rather than just the ability to gain and regurgitate knowledge.
To keep abreast with the rapidly expanding field of digital technology and the key role that design plays in today’s products and services, SCM is currently offering three undergraduate degree programmes:
- Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons)
- Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Design (Hons)
- Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Creative Digital Media
In these three programmes, strong elements of team work, communication skills, work ethics, entrepreneurial acumen, green-awareness and social responsibility are provided to prepare graduates well for the professional world, whether as computing specialists working in big IT corporations, or as entrepreneurs offering industrial design services.
Join us in learning, exploring and advancing new exciting frontiers of the digital and creative design world.
