The Interactive Digital Media major at Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design prepares students for these exciting and ever-changing fields. Our educational approach teaches best industry practices, where web developers are often in charge of the design, development and implementation of online content. We provide students with a comprehensive understanding of aesthetics and visual design in creating user interfaces, as well as the technical knowledge to program both the front- and back-end systems that bring interactive content to life.
Mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads and Android phones have become an indispensable part of our everyday lives. Billions of users worldwide are using these new technologies and applications to organize their everyday life, as well as for entertainment and education. And, with vast amounts of data being migrated to the ‘cloud’ to better serve consumer and industry demands, employers in these rapidly growing industries are looking for young talent with the skill sets to create fully dynamic online experiences that involve touch-based interaction, gestural technology and other technological advances.
