Successful graduates may start their own businesses, work on their own as freelancers or join established companies. The flexibility of an Applied Arts and Design diploma or Degree draws many to the industry, and traditionally needs a strong portfolio to stand out among the crowd.
The Department of Applied Arts and Design is a dynamic collective of innovative and talented staff working on the cutting edge of design, technology and arts practice. Our faculty consists of dedicated professionals with many years of experience, both as practitioners in their fields and as instructors keen to guide and assist you in your endeavors. Graduating students may find employment in areas as diverse as graphic art, interior design, web design and development, multimedia and Management Information Systems.
