Multimedia combines the creativity of art and design with the skills and knowledge of computer technologies and programming to create interactive digital media products such as online and mobile applications, screen based or environmentally interactive designs.

The course is designed to foster a range of interests and abilities including art, design, music, technology and computing. As the students progress through the programme they are encouraged to develop particular specialisations based on their individual interests and talents. Areas of specialist study include e-learning, games development, interaction design, interactive programming, 3D/animation, video production and audio technology.

By placing particular emphasis on individual and team based projects students learn how to integrate the various skills and competencies required to produce an effective multimedia product.

Interior Architecture involves the design of interiors of buildings, their layout and space planning, fitting, technical and structural resolution, furnishing and decoration, and the preparation of all technical drawings and written documentation, necessary for the carrying out of the work.

Interior Architecture is specific to a building’s interior. It stands at the intersection of Architecture, design of the built environment, sustainability, and conservation. Unlike interior design, it is architecture within the confines of an existing building. As such, the course requires a level of technical competence to compare with that of the architect, as the responsibilities to the client and community are similar.

At CIT, Interior Architecture covers the spectrum of industry specialisms. It involves the initial design and plan for use to accommodate a changed purpose, or a significantly revised design for adaptive reuse of the building shell. It considers structural adaption, sustainable redevelopment strategies, the use of light, air movement, ventilation, horizontal/vertical circulation, and servicing. The practice of Interior Architecture responds to multiple user needs and a wider social responsibility.

The Fine Art programme provides a studio based education in Fine Art, with emphasis on personal creative development. Fine Art describes any art form developed primarily for aesthetics or concept rather than utility. Students are introduced to the skills and philosophies of the practicing artist, and the course prepares them for active careers in the visual arts or for further study to Masters degree level.

Fine Art offers a series of very varied career paths. The course aims to instill individualism and independence. Graduates may build careers as practising artists. Other careers include teaching, photography, multimedia and crafts, and students may find employment in art criticism, as exhibition organisers and art handlers, in foundries, and as technicians and craft assistants.
