Centre for Research-Creation in Digital Media

Hub for Creative Digital Media

This Centre (CRCDM) was established in order to foster a media research/creation (R-C) environment at Sunway University. It is a transdisciplinary hub for creative digital media within the University with local and international partners forming collaboratories, both physical and virtual, cutting across time and space. It is aligned with (but not limited to) the School of Arts and related Departments. It has evolved rapidly to be inclusive of other faculties and departments to generate digital media content R&D across the University. CRCDM has assembled a transdisciplinary team of media researchers and creative designers with an extensive background in industry and education, to forge the applications and content required to introduce and support creative digital media initiatives at Sunway University and across the entire Sunway Group.
