Design and creative practice are essential skills in the business world and creative industries, and are applicable to a vast array of career opportunities.
Art and design have become valuable global commodities and are increasingly considered a core practice and specialist skill that informs the use of technology and innovation. AUT’s industry-led School of Art and Design focuses on innovative art and design-led thinking.
Our programmes are designed to develop the vision and skills needed to transform the way that creative industries and businesses appear to the world – including the concepts of design for sustainability and social innovation.
Our courses balance originality, creativity and conceptual development with theoretical and professional studies. AUT University provides world class facilities including galleries, a 3D lab, digital, photographic and moving image (including a full MOCAP studio) facilities, a textiles and design laboratory, and specialist design studios.
The School of Art and Design has a strong international reputation for the quality of its staff, programmes and research. There are many international projects undertaken by students and staff.
AUT’s design staff wish all those entering all categories the very best.
