If you have questions:


This track is given in the Information Design semester (fall). Information Design is all about data visualisation and infographics. In six courses and two projects students learn how to visualise data and complex information.

After the initial three courses on data visualisation, students choose either a visual or technical track of another three courses. After both tracks, the two groups come back together and show and combine their skills in two projects.

In the tech track students learn how to build visualisations into reality. Albeit technical, the track tests your creativity.


This track is given at Communication and Multimedia Design, a design bachelor focused on interactive digital products and services. CMD is part of the Faculty of Digital Media and Creative Industries at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.


This track has a Code of Conduct. Anyone interacting with this repository, organisation, or community is bound by it.
