Media Design School aims at providing trained graduates for digital and technological companies, so that they could respond to this opportunity of a rapidly expanding global industry.
From the outset, Media Design School sets out to ensure that technology companies could be armed with skilled graduates who are capable of informing and transforming the industry. As pioneers in the creative technology education sector, we are the first tertiary institution in the Southern Hemisphere to offer a dedicated programme of study in 3D animation using industry-standard computer graphics software. We were also specialised in gaming courses for future game developers.
Media Design School is a part of Laureate International Universities, the world's largest private university group. Thus, Media Design School is enabled to access faculty and resources across design universities such as New School of Architecture and Design in San Diego, California; the Santa Fe University of Art and Design; NABA Milano; and Domus Academy, also located in Milan.
Now located on Albert Street in the Auckland CBD, Media Design School is New Zealand's most awarded tertiary institution for digital and creative technology qualifications.
As creative technology changes and adapts, so too have Media Design School's courses, which are now offered both in Auckland and around the world. In September 2014, Media Design School opened the Media Design School of Digital Arts in San Diego and the AdSchool Creative Advertising programme in Milan, Italy and, in January 2015, Media Design School will open a new campus in partnership with Torrens University of Australia in Adelaide, Australia, enabling more students to experience Media Design School's philosophy of teaching.
