Graduates will able to plan, analyze, and create visual solutions to produce web sites, printed materials, and interactive online experiences.

 

PAX Prime

Digital Gaming hosted a booth again this year at PAX Prime 2013 in the Washington State Convention Center. Students worked hard to develop their own games, and the results were impressive! You can see a video highlighting LWTech's presence at the event on YouTube.

Video and Web

The Video and Web Production Degree at Lake Washington Institute of Technology is designed to reflect the growing synergy between Web design and video production as organizations seek to add compelling video content to their websites and develop a social media presence.  Students in the program learn digital storytelling and Web design principles, and develop strong video and Web production skills through software such as Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver and Flash. Video content distribution through different digital formats will be explored.  Students are prepared to produce videos in both small and large-scale production companies, as well as take on projects in a wide variety of genres including corporate video, documentary, narrative, music videos, and commercials.

KAIT Exchange Program

For three years, the MMDP department has hosted an exchange program with students from the Kanagawa Institute of Technology, located near Tokyo. In addition to practical work with English skills, students create movie posters, beginning with their own conceptual ideas. They study digital photography, photograph manipulation, typography and page layout with MMDP instructors. 

A video of  a past KAIT class is available on YouTube.
