Semester 1: Minor space
During the first semester, students can choose from various options at the University of Twente or they can go abroad. More information about the minor space and the possibilities for its content can be found at the UT minor site or in this flowchart. Note that a student must have obtained 90ECs (i.e. 6 modules) of their 1st and 2nd year CreaTe program to be allowed to start with the courses in the minor space.
Semester 2: graduation semester
The graduation semester is the last semester of the Creative Technology program. It consists of two modules: Real World Perspective (M11) and We CreaTe Impact (M12). Both modules share the Graduation Project (GP) - an individually executed design project, with a context and goal preferably set by an external party - as a component. However, the size of this component is significantly different: 4 EC in the first module vs 13 EC in the second module.
- The Real World Perspective module aims to (further) develop the student’s academic skills, mandatory to execute their Graduation Project. These skills allow a student to reflect from an external perspective (e.g. ethical, societal, environmental, economic) on the potential outcome of their work (e.g. Graduation Project) in a verbal, textual and (optional) visual manner.
- In the We CreaTe Impact module, the second phase of the GP will be executed; including ideation, specification, realisation, evaluation and reporting. Additionally, the draft reflection report (see Reflection Module 11) will be completed based on new insights gained during the execution of the GP.
Successful completion of their GP within the graduation semester is proof that they are able to work as a Creative Technologist at an academic bachelor level. They have ideas about potential success factors of technological innovations and are able to critically reflect on these innovations from human, societal, ethical, international and sustainable perspectives.
