What is the difference between this programme and related programmes at UT?

- Creative Technology applies the latest technological advances to the development of innovative solutions to promote user interaction.

- The programme focuses on creativity, smart technology, design, and user interaction.

- Creative Technology teaches the same technology as in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, but not for the purpose of improving that technology. Creative Technology concentrates on the effective use of technology, on the design of applications, and on the interaction between humans and technology.

- Similar to Industrial Design Engineering, the programme teaches design for human users, but the technology is exclusively smart technology, the materials and means of expression are mostly new media .
