Profile: Steve Rood, PhD candidate and artistThe innovative and collaborative environment is why Steve Rood decided to complete his Doctor of Philosophy in creative technologies.
“Creative technologies balances a number of differing approaches and unifies them in a unique way. The combination of people from various disciplines – from art and design to engineering and computing – creates an open and investigative atmosphere."
Programme Code: AK3518

Venue: City Campus
Start date: Anytime
AUT encourages early application. Places are limited.
If you would like information on your eligibility for admission to the PhD, you can contact the Associate Dean Postgraduate. International students can email firstname.lastname@example.org
You should provide official copies of academic transcripts, and evidence of previous independent research outputs, such as an honours-level project of master's-level dissertation or thesis. You should also provide evidence of successful completion of studies in research methodology at a postgraduate level.
You are admitted provisionally in the first year where you will refine your preliminary proposal into a fully fledged PhD proposal (the PGR9 document). This document critically reviews the significant work done in the area of research. The PGR9 proposal should also contain a suitable research methodology and methods along with a time-frame for completion of the degree that highlights important milestones to be achieved in the next couple of years. Once your PGR9 proposal is completed and approved through the faculty processes it is submitted to the University Postgraduate Board for full admission approval.
Once you have completed your research proposal, you will typically refine your design, collecting data and conducting your research as appropriate. Results are analysed and may be published through international conferences, journal publications and peer review as this lends further credibility to the research.
The first step in the final stage of the PhD is spent finalising the data analysis. Thereafter, the PhD thesis should be written and submitted to the supervisors for feedback. It should be noted that the process of finalising the thesis is time consuming as typically two or even three draft versions need to be produced before the thesis is in a form that is ready for submission and examination.
