Eligibility and selection
General entry requirements for second-cycle studies are required. If there are more qualified applicants than there are places, a selection must take place. That selection is based on the number of completed higher education credits (HPAV).
After mastering the fundamentals of design thinking, you will explore how to develop established techniques through other design disciplines; plotting, characterization, visualization, role-playing, storyboarding and prototyping.
