Here is what some of our student say about their experience of the Bachelor of Technology and Innovation.
Sophie Hawkins: BTi student
I chose the Bachelor of Technology and Innovation because I want to make a positive difference in society.
In the first semester of the course, I was encouraged to envision what our future society will look like. In the subject, Technology Labs: Imagine and Create, I had the opportunity to learn about how technology is being used to create a sustainable world and the ethical responsibility of creators. I was also able to fly drones and learn about biotechnologies.
The subject, Complex Challenges to Creative Possibilities, allowed me to conduct a practical field study on cities that are currently being built and imagine what possibilities there are for future cities. In the subject, Science Fiction: Making Futures, I composed a science fiction narrative as to envision possible futures. I also had the opportunity to explore areas I was interested in like genetic engineering and space exploration. The number one lesson I learned across all the subjects was that it is okay to fail as long as you learn from your mistakes.
Elliot Oliver: BTi Student
I originally took interest in the Bachelor of Technology and Innovation degree as it combined the 2 things I took great interest in - problem solving and immersive technologies. Being a brand new course of its type also played a major role in the decision process.
From day 1, my expectations were met and never disappointed throughout the course. We learnt about the importance of being able to look at situations and problems from different perspectives, how to use present data to speculate the future, and how new, emerging technologies could shape the world in a matter of years.
This course delivers insightful lessons and information relevant to today’s emerging issues and challenges which couldn’t previously be solved withouta lateral mindset. This course fosters and promotes inquisitive thinking, collaboration, and an experimental nature (to name just a few!) - skills which are highly desired in today’s major companies. If you want to solve problems, think laterally, immerse yourself in earth shattering technology, or simply just be an innovator, this course is the perfect gateway to a future of endless possibilities
Alex Gearing BTi Student
I decided to enrol in the Bachelor of Technology and Innovation in order to fuel my desire to create something meaningful and forward thinking, and it has not disappointed. Through deep exploration into emerging technologies and a broad array of team-based exercises that draw on the different talents possessed by people within my course, I have been able to explore technology in an interesting and exciting way.
The course has impressed me with its ability to offer a look into many different types of technologies whilst also offering the choice for me to strengthen my knowledge in any area of my choosing. On top of this, I have been impressed by the accentuation of soft skills in the syllabus that are fast becoming extremely important in the workforce. I am confident that at the conclusion of my studies I will be well equipped with the knowledge and mindset required to tackle my ambitions and I would recommend the BTi to any student with a passion for creativity and forming new ideas”.
