Ride with CMD!
Information for students and companies.
Communication and Multimedia Design (CMD) in Amsterdam puts digital design at the core of its program. It sets out to help students learn how to think and act like designers, and aims to give its digital design graduates the best possible preparation for today’s – and tomorrow’s – professional practice. At CMD Amsterdam students will learn to develop interactive products and services such as websites, apps and interactive installations.
The language of instruction during the four-year CMD curriculum is Dutch. For international students, we offer two English taught modules. They focus on User Experience Design and Design Thinking and Doing. More information here.
It is important to see how people behave the moment they come into contact with interactive media, and to incorporate this into the design process. For us, applied research and prototyping are essential parts of this design approach, and we encourage students to become masters in this.
The second and third study years go deeper into digital design, digital development, online strategies and general socio-cultural education. In the graduation year, students further develop themselves as starting CMD professionals through an intensive internship. To graduate, the student devises and builds an application for a group of users based on thorough research. Alongside study subjects the assigned Study Career Coach gives the student guidance up until to the graduation year.
Our complete curriculum (still partly in Dutch, working on it :) can be found on this page (click image to enlarge). Brief course descriptions will be added soon.
