Unit X6 at Softbiome

The Unit X6 course at Softbiome prepares students to start their careers in digital design and relevant fields, such as architecture, animation and the video game industry.

School: Softbiome
Course: Unit X6
Location: online
Course dates: six months
Application deadline: continuous enrolment

Unit X6 emerges as a natural evolution of what Softbiome is known for: the design of digital worlds.

This is why we believe the long-format course is an opportunity to go even deeper technically and to nurture the process even more, so the end result materializes in a project portfolio that serves you to start your career in digital design or to show around in job interviews.

Building on the success and flexibility of our previous Unit X courses, the new program takes advantage of the extended duration to structure the curriculum into three main blocks: skilling, research investigation and design development.

The course assessment prioritizes critical thinking as well as technical development.

We will use a grading protocol similar to those employed in world-class universities to ensure students perceive their performance against certain standards corresponding with higher education.

By completing our course, students will gain experience in understanding and applying design principles as well as acquiring important skills in technical concepts and elements.

These experience and skills can serve as the foundation for a solo career in digital design or can be applied to relevant fields such as architectural design, computer-generated imagery (CGI)/visual effects, animation or the video game industry.

We encourage students to pursue a career in digital design, regardless of their educational background.
