Welcome to the School of Design and Creative Technologies

Where Innovation, Creativity, and Art Converge

Vision

We aim to graduate diverse, creative students who are the best technical creators, designers and problem solvers with exceptional job opportunities.

Mission

The School of Design and Creative Technologies educates students for creative professions needed now and in the future. Our unique, responsive curriculum prepares graduates for the creative and complex global economy. We teach design and design thinking, as well as creative technologies that equip our students to deliver artistic and thoughtful products and content in four emphasis areas: Digital Visualization, Game Design, Music and Sound, and Projection, Lighting and Interactivity (PLAI). By teaching an entrepreneurial mindset and fostering the ability to tap into creative confidence, our goal is to shape the next generation of creatives to be innovators and leaders in the arts, entertainment, business, non-profit and government worlds.
