Student projects

The backbone of the curriculum is based on practical project work. Students carry out all stages of work involved in media design: from the concept to various design-related and technical stages of production through to post-production and publication. Often projects are implemented in interdisciplinary settings involving cooperation with the Communication Design, Sound Design and Interaction Design courses. Students also carry out project work in cooperation with external partners and clients who determine the theoretical framework and supervise the work processes. These clients are generally cultural or social institutions. All projects end with a public presentation. The results are frequently presented at festivals or broadcast on TV stations.

The possibility of writing the Master’s thesis for external clients such as business enterprises or research institutes involves a high level of practical relevance. Particularly committed and talented students and graduates are also involved in research projects and third-party projects run by the Institute of Design & Communication.
