Our approach to teaching and learning
The School’s educational offerings focus on the development of skills and methods to use technology to understand, manage and build complex systems that deliver value to enterprises, including organisational and environmental systems and smart infrastructure (natural, technological, socio-technical, and hybrid).
Our teaching and learning approach is shaped by the unique UTS Model of Learning framework, which encourages a practice-based, collaborative and globally relevant learning approach to develop sought after graduate attributes. Our partnership with industry, government and our alumni ensures that our programs are always relevant and future-oriented.
