Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) - Interactive Multimedia and Design (IMD) Carleton University




Course info


The four-year IMD program is aimed at students who are both artistically inclined and technologically adept and who are interested in all aspects of digital media. You will acquire the tools you need to take an idea or a problem and advance it through the entire process from concept to pre-production, production and post-production. The program provides you with a multidisciplinary education through courses in computer animation, visual effects, game design and development, graphic design and human-computer interaction. The program is then further enhanced with courses in science, mathematics, business and social science. You will graduate fully-equipped to work in and shape the digital world of the future.

With its unique mix of design, programming, physics, mathematics, and social science courses, the IMD program focuses on the entire multimedia production process: from initial concept through to final realization. It is best suited to students with the potential to be both creative and technologically adept, and with a keen interest in producing the next generation of multimedia applications, products, and systems.

Once registered in the IMD program, you will be considered a student at both Carleton University and Algonquin College. You will benefit from the outstanding facilities, teaching staff, resources and expertise that both institutions have to offer. Carleton University provides a well-rounded educational experience and background; Algonquin College provides further hands-on experience in applied course work.

Future opportunities

Successful completion of this four-year program gives you both a university bachelor’s degree and an advanced college diploma. This degree/diploma combination opens the door to a broad range of career opportunities such as computer animation, game design and development, digital video and audio effects, user interface design, multimedia development, dynamic web application design, e-commerce and more. Graduates from the Interactive Multimedia and Design program also have excellent opportunities to pursue Master’s and PhD programs at Carleton University (such as our Human-Computer Interaction Master’s programs) and at other universities.
