Creative Technologies

What are the possibilities if we let creative technical minds experiment at an art school? Creative Technologies enables students to engage with technology and software development in an artistic and creative context.

Study Areas

  • Creative Coding & Software Development

  • Audio & Graphics

  • Media Technologies, e.g.

    • Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Reality (XR)

    • Music Technologies

    • Interaction

    • Physical Computing

    • Programming Interfaces & Technical Direction

    • Film Production Processes, VFX, Virtual Production

  • Academic and Artistic Research, Research Methodologies & Innovation

  • Film, Storytelling, Design, and Digital Media Art

The Program

The master program Creative Technologies combines audiovisual media technologies and software development studies with an artistic-creative exploration of novel forms of expression in film, design and digital media art. Creative-artistic computer scientists as well as technically oriented designers come together to experiment with an interdisciplinary approach.

Focus are all mechanisms that contribute to the magic of film: from graphics, sound and visual effects over traditional production processes to novel forms of storytelling in XR (Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality), cross-media, and interactive. The long history of the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF and its fundamental values and resources offer the first steps of a successful career. As part of a university, which teaches art practices but is equally research oriented, the master's program Creative Technologies is unique in Germany.

For applicants to the Creative Technologies degree program, it is not their specific background that is decisive, but their willingness to experiment and the desire to think in new ways.

Creative Technologies provides the opportunity to explore software development as a creative tool and to develop novel forms of creative-artistic expressions.

Creative Technologies is an interdisciplinary program for students who want to think outside the box and who don't fit into a traditional study program such as Computer Science, Design or Film.
