What is Creative Technology?

A game played on an interactive LED floor that helps patients convalesce. A wrist band that enables you to track down your friends at a festival. A language test for pre-schoolers using eye tracking. These are all examples of projects carried out by students in our Bachelor’s programme Creative Technology. What will you come up with?

This English-taught programme challenges you to harness technology for developing innovations that consumers and organizations really need. Are you an out-of-the-box thinker eager to make a difference in society? Are you daring and interested in smart technology, new media and design? Then Creative Technology could be just the ticket for you. Throughout the many hands-on projects typical of our programmes at Twente, you will develop technical knowledge and skills, as well as the ability to understand how technology influences humans, design and creative processes. In our Smart Experience Laboratory (Smart XP) you will have room to discover how to turn a question or an opportunity into an appealing prototype.


Choosing Creative Technology means choosing the ultimate combination of design, creativity and technology. It also means making a deliberate choice for English as the language of instruction − and the head start this international language will give you in your career. Our graduates work for businesses and departments that foster real innovation. As a creative thinker and a bridge builder between different disciplines, you will be able to translate client wishes into new solutions. Perhaps you fancy marketing your smart idea through your own company? Creative Technology will take you beyond your imagination, enable you to develop fascinating high-tech applications and keep focussed on having a social impact.
