Launching in Toronto in January, 2010, Centennial College’s Media Engineering Design Integration (MEDI) post-graduate program will focus on the design, production and management of tomorrow’s media products and applications for wireless devices, interactive museum and retail installations, digital signage systems, and more.
“This program will help build a new future for the media sector and create a need for careers that we never dreamed possible 10 years ago,” says Nate Horowitz, Dean of the School of Communications, Media and Design. “Toronto is ideally positioned to take advantage of this new era in media, given its proximity to a number of integrating sectors in media, design, technology and engineering, creating an energetic and cross-connecting creative hub.”
Courses will be comprehensive in scope, ranging from an introduction to media engineering, to design for Web and mobile devices, to understanding the marketing cycle. Classroom and lab work will be complemented by an industry field placement. The program will prepare students to think entrepreneurially, to work with cross-functional teams, and to thrive in an environment of constant change and progress.
MEDI will be offered jointly by Centennial’s School of Communications, Media and Design and the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science.
