Colab: Creative Technologies at AUT: an overview

Colab is a new kind of academic unit - it's a school of emerging technologies, a cutting edge research institute and a creative industries network. Cutting across the traditional boundaries between creative arts, design, digital media, computing, engineering and entrepreneurship, our multidisciplinary degree brings them together in one innovative, project-based learning environment.
The study of creative technologies at AUT gives students a wide, relevant and contemporary education in the knowledge-intensive creative industries. It is a strongly studio-, workshop- and project-based discipline. Graduates will be creative practitioners who can collaborate and communicate effectively across a broad range of artistic, technological, commercial and cultural fields.
Specialist areas include:
  • Digital animation
  • Moving image production
  • Interactive entertainment
  • Gaming technologies
  • Smart systems
  • Robotics
