Immersive Media Design Courses

‘Design’ is evolving at a very fast rate in today’s world. With new technological interventions, one can notice its impact in day to day life. Such technological interventions deeply influence current design practices. Design thinking intervention in problem solving process also needs to be revisited.

Keeping this requirement in mind, MIT ID is offering a trans-disciplinary unique master programme in Immersive Media Design. This programme deals with the core technologies across merging disciplines of all creative expressions, which will form future means of interacting. Creating dialogues between natural environment and new digital frontiers. It is the convergence of technology with the new emerging media.

The program aims to make students more sensitive towards issues and problems and use emerging technologies to find meaning and engaging solutions. The program prepares the students for roles in various industry verticals such as IT services, futuristic research labs, healthcare and education and training sectors.

Learners will learn to transform data into meaningful social and emotional communication using technologies like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, using micro sensory with IoT, Gestural, Voice recognition and Haptics. It will explore the human side of futuristic immersive design with related technologies and interactions with emerging media in focus to understand the compelling user engagement in fields ranging from education, health, social communication; art, performing arts; entertainment, events; branding, spatial installations; simulations and business. The programme is to analyse the futuristic technology and its impact on mankind in the design perspective.

The aim of the programme is to provide advanced research and knowledge in futuristic technological interactions, and establish strong academic and industry-academic collaborative projects. It transforms data into meaningful social and emotional communication. It will explore the human side of futuristic immersive design with related technologies and interactions with emerging medias in focus to understand the compelling user engagement in fields ranging from education, health, social communication, art, entertainment, branding, spatial installations and business.

It will strive to create student with expertise who will eventually emerge as leaders to influence the future of Design. It’s about creating systems, a tangible or intangible or space that interact with the body or the mind through innovative technology for enriched experiences, the transformation of design visions into market opportunities.
