All universities teach theory, but the UTS Connected Intelligence Centre closes the gap between theory and practice with a unique approach to educational design. While academic and theoretical concepts are at the foundation of all the subjects on offer, our students are supported to apply their theoretical knowledge in a wide range of real-world settings.
Our unique approach to educational design enables students to experience a seamless integration of the best of online and face-to-face on campus learning. As well as attending lectures, students can access digital resources and undertake preliminary tasks prior to coming to class, and will be encouraged to apply their knowledge through tutorials, workshops, simulated scenarios and practice sessions.
