This new degree is a direct response to industry demand for graduates equipped to work at the intersection of technology, creativity and innovation. Graduates of this course can engage in a broad range of technology-related careers. The course is also for students who have the desire to eventually become strategic influencers in technology-related roles. Taking a transdisciplinary approach, the Bachelor of Technology and Innovation engages students with open, complex and networked problems and in doing so, enables them to develop the technological knowledge, practices, perspectives and strategies drawn from a diverse range of discipline areas. Extending their industry engagement, all students have the opportunity to undertake a carefully selected internship in the second year of the program, creating a tangible connection between the university learning environment and their future career aspirations.
