Objective(s) of a study programme:
Provide knowledge and develop competencies to analyse and assess multimedia technologies, their impact on business processes, identify problems and plan the strategies of solution; develop competencies necessary to select and integrate multimedia hardware and software and project, develop and manage multimedia systems.
Will communicate and cooperate, think analytically when solving problems, improve study skills, adapting to constant changes in the sphere of professional activities.
Will know and apply methods of calculus, physical phenomena and quantitative expression of the phenomena.
Will know and understand the principles of projection and creation, management and development of multimedia technologies.
Will analyse the demand for multimedia systems, develop the concept of their implementation, select appropriate technologies of development of a multimedia product.
Will project, develop and improve multimedia systems and their components.
Will coordinate and carry out implementation and testing of multimedia technologies.
Will perform development and maintenance of multimedia systems and ensure their operation and safety.
Activities of teaching and learning:
Methods of acquiring basic and new knowledge (lecture, lecture-discussion, laboratory works, consultations, group work) are applied to achieve the outcomes of conceptual basics; methods of computer practice, practical training, development of new systems, consultations, problem teaching, group work are applied to achieve the outcomes of study analysis, projection and implementation; project works, public presentation of work results (team and individual), consultations are carried out to achieve the learning outcomes of technological and methodical competencies; to achieve the learning outcomes of professional competence practical training at College and companies, project work and applied research are carried out.
Methods of assessment of learning achievements:
Assessment is carried out during the whole semester and examination session. Ten-grade criterion-based assessment system and accumulative assessment is applied. Semester study results are assessed during current assessments (tests, written assignments, exams (theoretical and practical tasks), defence of laboratory and individual works, etc. The studies of every subject end with examination or assessment of the student’s self-study work (project, course paper, evaluation of practical activities, etc.). Students’ knowledge and competencies are assessed during the exam session only if the student has carried out all the current assessment tasks during the semester. Current assessments and examination grades comprise final assessment. The proportions are provided in the course programmes.
Study subjects (modules), practical training:
The scope of the study subjects of the main field is 140 credits (with practice).
Main subjects studied: Graphic Design, Multimedia Technologies, Basics of Modern Media Art and Technologies Media Systems Projection and Modelling, Computer Graphics and Animation, Multimedia Hardware.
