Who We Are
Welcome to SDCT
The School of Design and Creative Technologies provides transformative educational experiences and opportunities that shape ambitious thinkers for a dynamic future. We are part of a top Tier One research university embedded in a vibrant creative community deep in the heart of Austin, Texas. Our industry-focused approach combined with research fuses design thinking with emerging technologies, so students are prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world. Here, we value our students' diverse experiences and encourage them to push beyond where their creative boundaries stand today to make an impact on the generations of tomorrow.
We have two degree-granting programs: the Department of Arts and Entertainment Technologies and the Department of Design, as well as programming open to all UT students through the Center for Integrated Design.
In Nov. 2023, junior design student Kahlil Davis attended an information session for Microsoft during the SDCT Career City Limits Speaker Series (CCL). This summer, he’ll be working as a design intern in Redmond, WA for the technology giant.
Author and "Intentional Networker" Patti DeNucci led the workshop “Build Your Conversation and Networking Confidence with Patti DeNucci” for UT students on Feb. 5. DeNucci believes striking authentic and meaningful conversations — whether in a 30-minute interview or 30-second elevator ride — opens space for professional growth and personal fulfillment.
