Included in the 2.5-year programmes are four months of internship opportunity, giving students a real-world experience.

The comprehensive programmes are designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge and techniques in their respective field of study. Complementing the C.O.D.E. programmes, KDU College has the best Art & Design facilities in Penang with the latest software so students learn and practice in real-world settings. Furthermore, C.O.D.E. students gain a global perspective through regional competitions, student exchange programmes and international study trips.

In 2014, the CMD students had an experiential 5-days learning trip to Singapore where they were impressed and inspired by the cutting edge facilities and professional sharing during their visits to the Singapore Art Museum, Reddot Design Museum Singapore, La Salle College of Arts Singapore and Grey Group Asia.
