Creative Technologies (2018)
Creative Technologies is focused on the creative outcomes of applying new technologies across a range of media in advanced and emerging cultural and artistic fields. Music papers are focused on digital music and applications, computer science papers focus on computer graphics and interactive media systems, and media papers include video production and new, integrated video-based multimedia practices.
In 2018, Creative Technologies is available as a graduate programme in the Master of Media and Creative Technologies.
Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Creative Technologies major, Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for programme advice.
