And because we are in the faculty of design & art, students have the opportunity to make interactive and truly interesting installations.
At first, students learn to understand the history of graphic design, the role of typography, applied in print media, the internet and other interactive media appropriately.
Technology is always changing, and the only way to learn to use it creatively is through a lot of experience. Now, in our faculty we have industry standard laboratories: iMac computers, screen printing machines, photographic tools, Epson large-format printers , laser cutting , laser labeling , engraving machines, sewing machines, wood workshops.
There is a showroom that is managed centrally by the university, which can be used by students as an appreciation and exhibition space. This is very important as a form of visual understanding of the work on display and appreciating it.
The study program also helps students to be able to connect directly with industry and the profession; through industry visiting activities and presenting guest lecturers from practitioners in lecture classes.
On the next occasion, the study program will emphasize the social role of design; through campus-based and community-based projects. so students can see firsthand how strong their abilities are in knowing their potential and positive changes.
