  • To encourage students to learn independently and think critically, and to become autonomous learners for life-long learning;
  • To provide students with a solid foundation of the conceptual, theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of software development, supplemented with knowledge from arts, humanities and business;
  • To develop students’ ability to produce efficient and reliable software solutions;
  • To develop students’ ability to produce human-centred user experience designs with visual appeal, functionality and user-friendliness; and
  • To enhance students’ awareness of art, culture and marketing in user experience designs.
