The ‘Digital Media Hub’ Takes its First Step

The new Digital Media Hub of the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, which is based within the Canterbury Innovation Centre, gave business leaders, advisers, innovators, entrepreneurs, service providers and representatives from the University’s research, business and strategic networks a sneak preview of its facilities at the University launch of Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise (ICE) on 17 November 2009. The Digital Media Hub is an opportunity to address the needs of our multimedia technology and design undergraduates, local industry and others who wish to gain access to the advanced digital technology and creative expertise available throughout the School. The Hub will provide a stimulating environment for the exchange of knowledge as well as offering usability and accessibility testing facilities for local businesses. It will be used to forge further links with local partners and ultimately secure employment for undergraduates within industry.
