BEng Digital Media Technology

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University


Media technologies are changing our world. Programming, signal and image processing, international networks, computer graphics and game design, and multimedia system management are just some of the technologies which you will learn about on the BEng Digital Media Technology programme. Students of digital media technology will become engineers with an understanding of hardware and software systems and how this knowledge can be applied creatively in the media and the arts.

Studying this programme will give you:

• a fundamental understanding of electronic engineering and computer science with an emphasis on digital media technology

• great potential to aid society and improve people's quality of life.

Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU undergraduate programmes, will earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognized degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.
