The academic year is divided into semesters, which are further divided into academic quarters. Every quarter consists of lecture periods and lecture + project periods, during which students are engaged in projects which are a direct opportunity of applying what is taught and learned in a given quarter.

This program is highly focused, intensive and demands student's absolute determination and dedication. In order to complete this program successfully, the student needs to make a decision from the time of applying that this is the professional direction he/she is taking. NICC does not recommend this program to students who are not certain of their choice of professional specialization, thus would recommend a longer program such as Communication Design.
