I'm currently at the mezzanine lab where communication students have daily access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite as well as other industry standard software for film audio and animation. And because of that, it gives students the freedom to work on their projects when it best suits them. This lab is also a great collaborative space for students to work together on their projects and pitch ideas with their peers, creating invaluable teamwork experience. If you're looking for a practical approach to hands-on learning then you'll find it here at UTS.
This is the Bon Marche studio where media arts and production students in their final year have access to a huge green-screen for their major projects, a lighting and sound desk and an HD projector for their film screenings. This theater also comes with a state-of-the-art surround sound system allowing students to showcase their work in a cinema standard venue. Our music and sound design and media arts and production students have access to current technologies combining both digital and analog equipment, preparing them for a wide range of creative industry practices. All control rooms are connected to the studio spaces that can accommodate ensembles of up to 40 performers.
The studio also allows for ADR and Foley recording. Each control room is resourced with an SSL matrix console and top and generic loudspeakers for monitoring. This is the equipment store which provides students with access to over 1,500 pieces of equipment giving them the opportunity to customize their practice for their future. The equipment ranges from microphones, recorders, lighting, high quality DSLRs as well as industry standard cinema cameras such as the Blackmagic Ursa Pro.
At the Journalism lab, journalism students can gain hands-on experience in a dynamic digital newsroom, working on a new custom designed website, centralnews.com.au. The aim is to give students the competence and skills to be job ready, as well as to create great stories to add to their portfolios. Our final stop in the communication facilities is here in the animation suites where final year communication students can exercise their interest in digital media.

We are now in our science lab which simulates a range of equipment and materials that are used in high schools. In this lab you'll get to not only learn and practice the principles of teaching science to high school students but you'll also get to do some really cool experiments.
If art is what you're into then you'll be using this studio a lot. This space facilitates for creative learning in different forms of visual arts so that you can take those skills to the classroom.
