Why Computing & Creative Media

When digital literacy, creativity & technological knowledge come together.

With technological development, the world has changed rapidly and at an unimaginable rate. We now carry far more advanced technology in our mobile devices than that which took Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to reach the Moon; and thirty years ago, only specialists knew how to use the Internet. Now, billions of people use the Internet for information, to trade, communicate and update their statuses every second of everyday!

As we advance further in this hyper-connected world, digital literacy and technological knowledge becomes more a necessity than a simple advantage. We are witnessing technology which have been designed to mimic the way we think, imagine and create, permeate into our everyday activities.

Growing in tandem, recent years have also seen a huge growth in the electronic games industry. This unprecedented growth is so huge, some computer and mobile games (think Pokemon Go and Grand Theft Auto V) even exceed Hollywood blockbuster films in terms of revenue generation and potential profits. The games industry is exciting, enormous and more diverse than ever.

Understanding the interplay between computing and the highly immersive world of digital entertainment, KDU embodies the concept of “Technological Artistry”, an approach to merge creativity into technology, producing graduates who can bridge these two distinct disciplines that are in the forefront of innovation.

Utilising a combination of strategic industry collaborations and academic partnerships, KDU produce young computing and creative media talents that not only fulfil the needs of the industry, but help shape what it becomes in the future.
Be taught by subject matter experts and industry practitioners who bring industry practices and methodologies into the classroom. Our philosophy is to nurture the development of talents who will establish themselves as the future of computing and game development.
