Prepare yourself for media engineering design integration field via media education

  1. 1. Prepare Yourself for Media Engineering Design Integration Field via Media EducationProject manager, digital media production; interactive technical producer, museum and instructionaldesign; producer, digital signage networks; user experience designer, consumer electronics; softwaredesigner, embedded systems; mobile communications application developer. These are just a few of thejobs available in Media Engineering Design Integration (MEDI) to those with media education fromCentennial College. But what exactly is this field? In it, robotics technology, the power of mobile Internetand 3D cinematic storytelling are combined with the next generation of media and entertainmentexperiences. Professionals in this industry are in high demand by media technology developers, mediapublishers and media producers.The first media education courses of its sort, the Media Engineering Design Integration program atCentennial College brings together the School of Communications, Media and Design and School ofEngineering, Technology and Applied Science. In the process, it merges two diverse groups of studentswith different strengths and weaknesses. To bring the groups of engineering technology and media designprofessionals to a level of equivalence, students will be expected to qualify for advanced standing in twocourses in their respective disciplines in the first semester.Focused on the design, production and management of innovative media products, the media studiescourses in this program include application development and content creation for wireless devices,interactive museum and retail installations, digital signage systems and networks and more. Media studiescourses include topics such as introduction to media engineering, video production and sound design,media electronics, the marketing cycle, content management and much more. In addition, laboratorypractice with PLCs, robotics, sensors, electronics and network technology is a key component. Many of thecourses include project-based training, lectures and laboratory experience. Specific courses include: VideoProduction and Sound Design (introduces students to the best practices of video producers, editors andaudio designers in the creation of digital media productions); Math and Electrical Fundamentals (a theoryand lab course that introduces students to the fundamental principles and theorems of D C and A C seriesand parallel circuits); Content Management (introduces principles underlying the major systems of contentmanagement for the collection and dissemination of information within organizations, and themanagement of editorial content for digital publishing enterprises); and many others.To complement their in-school media education, in their final semester, students spend 15 weeks, threedays a week, in a field placement working alongside professional staff in a media production environmentor media engineering technology firm. This work placement is facilitated by the faculty, and will bedetermined based on the students’ project work and in consultation with the host companies. Classroomand project work will be coordinated with the placement. Project advance meetings for the workplacement relationship will have begun during the second term, so that students will be able to make apositive contribution during their placement.To apply to this post-graduate certificate program with its array of media studies courses, studentsmust submit an official transcript that demonstrates proof of successful completion of a post-secondarydiploma or degree program. In addition, there are also non-academic requirements such as a programinformation session or portfolio review. Please note that Centennial will consider people presenting apartial post-secondary education (eight college or university credits) in media production or engineeringtechnology.For More Info.
