Creative technologies

Use technology and your own creativity to bring your ideas to life and shape our world. AUT’s creative technologies programmes bring together the creative arts, design, digital media, computing, engineering and entrepreneurship in one innovative learning environment.

You collaborate with your classmates on projects, sharing ideas and supporting each other to achieve the best outcome. You can also work on projects with one of our many industry partners, giving you valuable industry experience and networking opportunities.

Undergraduate study in creative technologies will give you a solid grounding in your chosen area.
