The project based master’s degree programme Digital Media offered by Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences combines the creativity of design with the cutting-edge of information technology.


The master’s degree programme Digital Media offered by Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences focuses on fields that employ digital media and technologies to develop new products and services which transfer knowledge and ensure great interaction experience. Digital exhibits used at trade-fairs, digital services for theatres, apps that might visualise the solar system or interfaces for home networking solutions, are just a few examples of the challenges that digital communication, information and interaction might have to meet. 

Whenever we want to communicate complex content, design an interactive experience or tell multi-layered digital stories, we need approaches far beyond established forms of communication and interaction. We designed our degree to equip you with the skills and versatility to remain successful amidst this rapidly changing and increasingly complex professional environment. As a graduate you will benefit from the hands-on experience you have acquired and will be excellently prepared to develop and successfully implement digital projects across specialisms.

Career prospects

As the lines between scientific disciplines become increasingly blurred, interdisciplinary team work is an inevitable part of computer scientists‘ as well as designers‘ professional life. Our degree programme aims to equip you for a career that matches these current and future labour market trends.The personal, professional and technical skills you acquire, will give you a competitive edge when it comes to addressing tasks that involve profound knowledge across specialisms in the fields of technology, computer sciences and design.

You will find employment for example with design or advertising agencies and work in the fields of screen and interactive design or interactive digital installations. You might also be employed by companies to take over tasks at the interface of design and information technology, such as the development of trendsetting online shops or user interfaces of new products. Due to the unusually dynamic environment of digital media you can expect to find pioneering trends and an even wider range of career opportunities in future. With a master’s degree in Digital Media, you will be highly qualified to work in interdisciplinary teams and make use of multiple specialisms. Your proficiency in evaluating the impact of technical and creative decisions on projects at an early stage will set you apart from the crowd and enable you to successfully develop and realise innovative digital media projects.
