MOME OPEN aims to fill the knowledge transfer gaps of the 21st century by creating and operating training areas in the arts, culture, education and business, and to train an outstanding workforce to fill the skills and competency gaps in the creative industries.

Our beginner photography course focuses on basic professional skills. It also introduces advanced techniques and provides a comprehensive overview of the different areas of professional and amateur photography. Participants will be able to confidently handle equipment and work independently in the studio. During the training, participants will learn the skills of the profession in practical and theoretical classes, where, in addition to technical skills, a critical approach to photography will be emphasised, helping students to form a visual opinion and to transform their own ideas into images.

In collaboration with the MOME Institute of Architecture and Brick Visual, we launched the first bilingual Beginner 3D artist course at MOME Open. Learn from the professionals who virtualise the buildings of the world's top architectural design firms as they were envisioned by their star architects. Brick has established its reputation as one of the most renowned studios in the architectural visualization industry. Their artists share valuable expertise through their educational brand, Brick Academy, which extends its curriculum to MOME Open via this course.

As archviz software becomes widely available, it will be more difficult for 3D artists to stand out from the crowd. To create a professional archviz image, it is no longer enough to exactly show reality. Under the mentorship of Brick experts, you will master the initial steps of high-end architectural visualization. You will learn how to build up an image from a conceptual viewpoint while developing an artistic eye for composition. By the end of the course, you will acquire powerful skills to handle recurring challenges and problems in the post-production phase.

There are three things that make creative teamwork really effective: a team of people from diverse backgrounds, a methodology that fosters creativity and a skilled facilitator. If you've seen Design Thinking in practice, you've experienced how effective collaboration can be with a few simple tools. In our course, you can learn how to apply them effectively in your own projects, involving others in the thinking and getting the most out of your team!

Creativity and the ability to problem-solve and work in a team are valuable skills in almost any field. In our daily lives, we are constantly faced with planning tasks of all sizes, even when we are not working in the creative professions - for example, organising a project or a programme, setting strategic goals or even putting together a presentation. For these, Design Thinking can be used to make the process more efficient and achieve innovative outcomes.

For companies, sustainability is no longer a matter of choice, but a vital expectation from investors, employees, customers and public authorities. Most environmental and social sustainability tasks end up in the hands of the communications team or agency, without standards for communicating the issue having been established. The GB Academy and MOME Open training courses provide students with up-to-date knowledge from leading sustainability experts and colleagues with experience in the communication sector.

MOME Insight is a hands-on training focused on research, where experienced research professionals from Hungary share their knowledge. The course builds on the basic knowledge of the UX and complements it with commonly used research methods (interviewing, logbook research, observation, questionnaires, usability testing), their practical application and directly applicable advice. Through examples, you will learn how qualitative research can be used to map the problem domain and to analyse and interpret the results effectively.

D3.js is the most versatile and powerful data visualization tool on the market. It is behind some of the most stunning and informative interactive dashboards, journalistic stories, responsive scrollytelling pieces, and even static visualizations published in magazines like Scientific American and National Geographic.

You will also discover data visualization best practices and create your own project.

In our Digital Product Designer (UX/UI designer) course you will learn the processes and tools of user experience design. You will be given the task of creating an interactive product prototype, which will not only help you master the methodology, but also help you understand the interrelationship of the design steps within the overall process. The arc of the course is the collaborative-focused toolkit of Design Thinking, complemented by the digital tools of User-Centered Design. The course thus places a strong emphasis on teamwork and conscious and empathetic design.

Year after year, the Hungarian film industry is breaking records in terms of film production costs. In order to maintain the competitiveness of the flourishing Hungarian film industry and to increase production volume, not only studio developments but also the training of professionals with high quality knowledge is essential. The Production Design Basic Course fills a gap, focusing on the development of skills and transfer of knowledge necessary for the design of cinematic visual worlds.

Map is one of the oldest, most popular and widely used information visualisations and the father of data visualisation. In the last twenty years new avenues opened up for cartography thanks to the previously unimaginable amount of data, user-friendly software and the possibility of interaction and animation, which has led to the emergence of new methods of representation and the democratisation of cartography, as well as the popularisation of new visions that have significantly altered traditional cartography.
