The course program leading to the first-level academic diploma in the School of New Art Technologies is intended to provide adequate mastery of methods and techniques in the field of art research applied to the use of new media technologies in communication.
Students in the School’s diploma course must:
- possess an adequate technical-operative formation in methods and contents related to artistic applications of the new technologies, and knowledge of the multimedial and digital techniques available for production of artworks and information;
- possess methodological and critical tools for acquisition of skills in expressive languages, techniques and advanced technologies, and be able to use artistic experimentation in specific technological and multimedial languages applied to the sectors of digital, multimedial, interactive and performative visual arts, video and cinema, and the web;
- be competent in at least one foreign language of the European Community, besides the mother tongue, in the main area of competence and for general information exchange;
- possess adequate knowledge of informatic and telecommunication tools in the specific areas of competence.
Graduates will undertake professional activities in various fields, both as free-lance art professionals in new technological fields, and as collaborators in the planning, design and execution of specific interventions using the new technologies, from designing and realising interactive audiovisual and multimedial works to virtual modelling.
The Academies will organise, in collaboration with public and private institutions, internships and apprenticeships that will provide the specific skills needed, and will further define specific training models for each course of study.
