New artistic programs in Skellefteå

Published: 17 February 2017

The artistic environment at Luleå University of Technology will now be strengthened with the establishment of a new main area called visual design and two new three-year bachelor programs in Film Design and Digital Design. The new programs in Skelleftea replaces the earlier courses in Computer graphics and film and television production design / prop.

- It is a very exciting and positive development that the artistic environment at Luleå University of Technology grows with the establishment of a new main field of visual design, as well as two new courses in Skelleftea. Methods and tools to create image and interaction has evolved tremendously since the former very popular programs in Film and TV production design / prop and Computer Graphics started and it is important that our programming and content changes and is updated with the outside world, says the prefect Monica Johansson at the Department of art, communication and learning.

The two new programs share a common basis in the practical and theoretical aspects of image creation and visual design. Digital Design is targeted at those looking for knowledge and skills in digital movie effects, computer graphics, visualization and virtual reality. Film Design is aimed at those who want to develop skills and knowledge in design and new media in stage design, attributes or light.

- The professional roles are many and the need for skills is growing in the industry. Would you like to produce film, television, computer games, virtual reality and other visual media then the training in visual design is the right choice for you. You will get the opportunity to build a strong portfolio and establish industry contacts which gives you a unique prerequisite for a career in the profession you are interested in, says Håkan Wallin.
The courses will start autumn 2017.
