Nowadays, it is impossible to communicate, inform, influence people and find solutions to social problems, without design. The sector of communication is based on design. In addition, we are living in a world of images and digital technology, and design education should take this fact into consideration. Visual Communication Design department, while aiming at educating its students as international designers, provides them an interdisciplinary perspective combining art, design and technology.
By using the facilities provided by the media centre, audio visual studios, computer, multimedia and interaction labs, and with the help of the practical and theoretical courses within the program, the students gain experience in different fields which use visual communication design such as: digital media, multimedia applications, graphic design, interaction design, game design, UI/UX design, virtual and augmented reality, video and film design, web and mobile application design, moving graphics and animation, information design, 3D modelling, corporate identity design, advertising, etc. They are educated as contemporary designers with an intellectual background and who can design creative, different, attractive and aesthetic messages.
If you are curious, creative and if you want to use that in design by using digital technologies, this department is suitable for you and we would be glad to see you among us.
