North Island College has announced that their Interactive Media Department will now be known as DIGITAL Design + Development. Beginning this fall, the five credentials currently offered through Interactive Media will transition to the new name, with revamped curriculum and content.

The Advanced DIGITAL Design + Development Diploma will have two streams: A design stream focused on creating effective user interfaces and a development stream focused on computer programming for web and mobile app development.

“Small classes, a curriculum designed both by industry experts and established educators, the flexibility for students to tailor their courses to their specific goals, and the broad and in-depth spectrum of courses offered, all combine to position the new DIGITAL Design + Development as a leader in technology education,” said program coordinator Megan Wilson.
