Good Practice Information

MEDIACUBE is an interdisciplinary university programme oriented on interdisciplinary and cooperation projects between designers and technicians in the field of games design and development as well as media design and web development. In mixed project groups, students practice the teamwork of the multimedia industry.
Courses shared by students from both departments provide creative exchange and mutual inspiration. The results are technically and creatively ambitious media projects such as computer games, installations, apps or augmented reality applications. Internationally renowned artists, scientist and technologists are invited as guest professors to give expert input.

Evidence of success

The success factors are provided by the fusion of the two study programmes that were separated and interdisciplinary is the main strength, because in this way, it is possible to create different team according to the expertise. The project is at the beginning but it is a way for the university to enter more and more into the gaming industry.
