James Watt College (Faculty of Design & Media)




If you are creative, enjoy working on your own initiative and the thought of working in a stimulating, dynamic environment appeals, then one of our Design & Media courses could provide you with the starting point to launch a career in this fast-moving industry.

Communication is fundamental in today’s modern world and plays a central role in our lives. It is vital in all aspects of day-to-day life, both personally and professionally - whether it be visual forms of communication demonstrated through design; mass media communication in the form of new technologies in TV, photography and video; or written and verbal skills in the fields of marketing, PR, advertising and journalism.

The art and design industry focuses on the visual aspects of communication and offers a range of career opportunities, from graphic design to interior and product design. People looking to work in this industry should be highly creative. However, owing to the competitive nature of the industry, qualifications and a good portfolio will assist greatly in finding employment, as will proficiency in the use of computers and appropriate software packages.

The animation industry is a highly specialised field within the design sector, providing creatively challenging and demanding career prospects for those with the academic and practical background to progress through the industry. The phenomenal growth of new technologies such as the Internet, multimedia and the games industry, has created further opportunities for those who wish to rise to the challenge of keeping up-to-date with such changes.

The use of new digital technologies has increased dramatically over the past decade and continues to do so. The world of communication, TV, video and photography has been central to this ‘digital revolution’, increasing career possibilities and opening up employment opportunities.
