Qualifications offered through Wellington's ICT Graduate School
Master of Design Technology (MDT)
The Master of Design Technology (MDT) is a one-year, full-time professional master’s degree that will provide students with the professional skills needed to work effectively in highly technical design professions such as game design, Visual Effects (VFX), exhibition design and multimedia design.
The MDT is technology-centric and builds upon the skills acquired in an undergraduate degree focused on digital technology. The MDT will be ideal for students holding a bachelor’s degree in design who are looking to up-skill with advanced techniques and high-tech professional practice. A 60-point practicum concluding the degree will contribute a substantial project to the student’s design portfolio.
Master of User Experience Design (MUXD)
The Master of User Experience Design (MUXD) is a one-year, full-time master’s degree, aimed particularly at industry professionals and/or recent graduates without an undergraduate qualification in media design, ie. a conversion master’s degree. The degree will build on the relevant skills these students have developed during their professional careers and/or undergraduate university study, such as problem solving, critical thinking and verbal and written communication.
