Half of your study time is allocated to studio work, developing new ideas or working on a range of projects. You build web applications, make films, create animations and soundscapes, and design interactive multimedia environments or games. You might invent smart products, systems and services. You also study the theoretical and social context of your projects, learn to apply your ideas to different fields and to think entrepreneurially.
Throughout your studies you learn to present and sell your ideas, and constructively discuss your classmates’ projects. You also learn how to work with others and put together teams that can achieve more than you could by yourself. Most importantly, the studios are based around you, the student, rather than the lecturers, and are designed to encourage you to take responsibility for your own learning.
There are so many career possibilities when you study the Bachelor of Creative Technologies. Check out the post study career opportunities in this guide.
You’re introduced to key concepts of creative technologies and have opportunities to develop these through diverse studio projects. We attract students with a broad range of interests, and everyone does the same projects in Year 1. This means everyone ends the year with new skills and an understanding of how to combine these in new ways. Projects will vary but you’ll learn how to express your ideas in a variety of digital and physical media – whether it’s through film, sound, robotics, games or smart objects.
