Programme profile

Art and Technology (ArT) is for students with an urge to create and to work with the interactive field between art and technology. ArT will challenge you to develop and demonstrate your artistic creativity and to design large scale installations and events in cross-disciplinary teams.

During First Year you will work with spatiality, installations and constructions in workshops and minor projects. The focus is on materials and the quality of experience. In the Second Year you will work with "intelligent tools" and "interactive spaces" in which the physical world interacts with the audience. You will work with such subjects as sensors, robots, interactive graphics, audio and new media.. You will participate in a major study tour to a European destination and will work with the best installation artists and engineers in the field.

In your final year your skills in narrative technique will be strengthened. Project work will involve artists and specific target audiences, and will result in the design of major events, experience parks or scenic courses of events. You will complete a Bachelor's project which will give you the opportunity to specialise within your primary field of interest
