Profile of the programme University of Beira Interior’s master in Multimedia Design offers training based upon the understanding and domain, both conceptual and technical, of the most recent and advanced technologies of the digital era, without forgetting to relate them with the broader context of traditional Design practices
Therefore, it aims to capacitate the students to the development not only of specialized professional activities in the distinct areas convened by Design, but also in investigation and creative projects
Built up as an interdisciplinary creative space intended to promote the interchange of ideas and the reflection about the convergence among art, science and technology, this master’s goal is to support and endorse the development of new languages of multimedia communication and the humanization of new media, investing in the creative investigation of new narrative forms through Design and its several interfaces
Key learning outcomes At the end of the master, the student must be able to: - Conceive and manage projects; - Generate new ideas, both creative and functional; - Identify, place and solve problems; - Apply the acquired knowledge to specific situations; - Develop an abstract and analytical thought; - Work, individually and in team, considering the quality of the presented outcomes; - Take initiative, showing a entrepreneurial spirit and intellectual curiosity; - Communicate effectively with distinct targets; - Commit to tasks and responsibilities; - Adjust to new situations, dealing with pressure; - Develop an ethical, civic and social conscience as a professional
To a more specific level, it is our goal that, at the end of the master, the student may: - Demonstrate solid knowledge about the distinct areas summoned by Multimedia Design; - Capture, manipulate and digitally edit graphics, both static and animated; - Manipulate image and sound; - Conceive and apply different models of interaction between users and platforms; - Plan and manage projects according to previously defined concepts; - Interpret, choose and explore multimedia languages and tools; - Make, test and publish prototypes; - Choose the proper investigation method to specific challenges; - Put together different materials and technologies; - Work, individually and in team; - Conciliate a methodological attitude in the act of project with a poetic of Design; - Research, process and analyze information from multiple sources; - Apply distinct tools and methodologies correctly, articulating them with the needs of long and complex projects; - Be autonomous in the pursuit of solutions to tasks entailed by the activity of designer; - Write a thesis or a scientific report about a project or an internship done during the master; - Be able to evaluate the ethical, political, social and economic terms, implications and consequences of Design; - Demonstrate an entrepreneurial mentality through individual initiatives or the collaboration with existing projects; - Develop a critical sense, a professional ethic and a sense of social responsibility.
Occupational profiles of graduates The training given by this master allows the student to be able to perform at different levels within the several areas of Multimedia Design, not only as a multimedia designer (liberal professional), but also as an adviser on multimedia and visual communication; implementing interactive and immersive projects; working as web-designer, graphic designer, with typography, computer graphics, illustration, 3D-modelling, animation, video and TV production and editing, advertising and new on-line services. This master also allows the development of more reflective activities, such as scientific research, enabling the student to the practice of teaching.
Learning facilities The course benefits from several modern facilities, such as the Laboratory of Interactive Installations (LIMI); the Cyber-center; Workshops on Audiovisual and Multimedia (with Internet, scanner, printers, CD-ROM, networks, producing and editing digital and analog video), Photo Lab, Studio TV and Film Lab, Internal Circuit TV and a Computer Center.
