Film studio Saxion Art & TechnologyApps, animations, interactive television and social media: they are all perfect examples of creative solutions that have been developed in recent years. You find them all over the world. New technological developments are emerging at breakneck speed and are being applied creatively to produce new ideas. But who thinks up these ideas? And how? Within Art & Technology, you learn about the processes behind devising such technologies. And who knows, you might be thinking up brand-new concepts yourself in a couple of years’ time.

The Art & Technology course forms part of the Creative Media and Game Technologies degree. In this course, you learn how to apply new techniques to create new forms of communication and subsequently develop new, interactive concepts. You take account of customer wishes, of course, while drawing on your own creativity as a specialism. Because as an Art & Technology student, you are – needless to say – extremely creative. In addition, you are curious, inventive and open-minded.
