Welcome to the Colab Student Pages
In 2005, AUT drew together art, design, communication studies, computing, mathematics and engineering under one faculty: the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies.
In 2008, AUT pioneered a new degree: the Bachelor of Creative Technologies that has gone from success to success. The degree is a hot house for innovation and creativity and provides a broad, relevant and contemporary education in the knowledge-intensive creative industries sector. ‘Creative technologies refers to design, communication, computing, engineering, entertainment and manufacturing media. This is complemented by an innovative set of postgraduate programmes including the Master of Creative Technologies degree.
The curriculum of the programmes is project-based and delivered using a studio model. Students are encouraged to pursue their own interests and the curriculum is sufficiently flexible to allow this to occur. This website contains a snapshot of the work of current students in these programmes as well as a number of resources to assist students.
