Web, game and interactive design

Ranked in the QS Top 100 for art and design schools in the world.


Massey research in this area explores a broad range of digital platforms, investigating how people connect with media and how state-of-the-art technologies can challenge existing interactive models. Whether it is mobile- and web-apps, VR/AR experiences, interactive artworks, or games, our researchers seek to develop new critical insights and forms of creative expression, in pursuit of defining the future of digital media.


Careers in web, game and interactive design

Creative Media Production will shape the future of storytelling. The three year degree ensures all students are grounded in critical and contextual understanding, and develop the technical expertise and hands-on skills required to define the future of interactive digital media.

Web, game and interactive design students have access to well resourced facilities with a comprehensive range of equipment.

Collaborative, cross disciplinary projects and live briefs provided by industry partners ensure students achieve critical academic and real world milestones, and make connections that facilitate career opportunities.

Students develop practical, transferable skills to create mobile and web apps, VR/AR experiences, and interactive artworks. Techniques include coding, hacking, and hardware design with no prior art or programming experience required. Our students graduate with the critical insight, creative expression, and technical expertise.

Studying web, game and interactive media at Massey could lead to careers in game design, visual and audio asset production, game programming to create the next generation of desktop, mobile, and console games, user-experience (UX) design, web design, interaction design, and web and app development.
