The human brain has a creative right side and a left one that is responsible for our ability to use logic, to analyse and to develop technical and scientific thinking. If you look at our areas of specialisation above, it will come as no surprise when I say that Multimedia and Creative Technology is the interface between the two spheres. In the MCT Department, we nurture both students, technical skills and their creativity, allowing them to apply their imagination, their dreams and their artistic talents in terms of state-of-art technology.
