About

Design and visualisation plays a key role in many of today’s businesses and organisations. From designing complex animations, brand identity, 3D products, virtual interiors, landscape, architectural visualisation and new conceptual designs, employers look for graduates with creativity and knowledge-based software skills. Design and Visualisation is offered by Birmingham City University. 

Overview

You can choose to study from a variety of cross disciplinary MA modules in which to learn how to apply design visualisation techniques and strategies. Choose from areas such as product design, interior design, graphic design and various other specialisations.

What's covered in the course?

This Design and Visualisation course at Birmingham City University will enable you to further develop your skills and competencies as a 3D design visualiser with an understanding of the design process. 

You will be taught how to make important critical decisions, how to devise visualisation strategies, design methods and how to use these skills across a range of disciplines.

You will learn how to evaluate, choose and apply relevant theories, concepts and techniques to the solution of design and the knowledge that underpins it. This knowledge and the transferable skills you will develop will help you to succeed in a competitive industry.

You will have the opportunity to engage with Live Projects within the curriculum, offering unique opportunities to experience working on real projects for real clients. 

The learning objectives place emphasis on the process of development, rather than just focusing on the final outcome. 

Importance is placed not only on design quality but also on engagement practice, creative participation and how the design is developed.

The programme incorporates frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing existing designs and techniques. 

You’ll graduate with a solid understanding of design visualisation, as well as how to apply different visualisation techniques to different situations.

You will study at our City Centre Campus Parkside Building, a five-floor building with studios and social space for students and staff to engage in creative ideas.
