The Facultyof Digital Media and Creative Industries educates students to become independent professionals in the work market of the future. The faculty works on solving societal issues in and around Amsterdam. The faculty encourages innovation and professionalisation of companies and organisations.
Amsterdam is a truly international city with a cosmopolitan population. Approx. 175 nationalities. Many international companies have their European offices here. We supply the workforce for this metropolitan area. We have nearly a hundred partner institutions around the world with which we do regualr semester exchanges of students as well as of lecturers. With a smaller number of partners we are exploring co-creation of new programmes with short-term student exchange, symultaneous running of projects and collaboration between studentss in different countries using new technology. Our work field is international by nature and we particularly try to work together with the most connected cities in the world.
Situated in the centre of Amsterdam and as the largest univeristy of applied sciences in the the Netherlands AUAS and the faculty DMCI play a major role in educating graduates for the international workplace that the Amsterdam metropolitan area is. We work together with the Amsterdam City Council and with businesses in the area to make sure that the skills of our graduates meet the changing needs of the local and interntional work place.
Traditionally the AUAS is focused on Bachelor education, hence the much larger number of programmes at this level. However in recent years we have moved to much more applied research and also to offering master level programmes as well as flexible and modular education. The goal is always to prepare students for the work place.
