UAT students are technologists—this fact lies at the heart of our undergraduate programs. With this in mind, UAT created an academic approach to combine widespread expectations of the undergraduate learning experience with a thinking curriculum and academic programs that urge students to seek an understanding of technology as it relates directly to their chosen discipline. No matter which technology degree students pursue, they receive a deeply focused education that empowers them with the knowledge, skills and tools of intellectual inquiry they’ll need to find their place within the technology community that awaits them.
Students in UAT’s science-focused technology degree programs—such as Advancing Computer Science, Network Security, or Technology Forensics—learn scientific theory, process-oriented approaches and logical reasoning. Students in arts-centered degree programs—such as Game Design, Digital Video, or Digital Media—learn aspects of creative development, approaches to abstract and conceptual thought and the application of technical proficiency.
Each of these approaches allows students to take away skills to enhance their mastery of their discipline. Technology college students culminate their academic experience with the creation of an original Student Innovation Project, a collection of original works compiled into a portfolio, and the real-world experience of an internship.
UAT’s Master of Science degrees, like the undergraduate programs, facilitate the practical application of technical knowledge in a specific discipline of advancing technology. These technology degree programs provide immersion in an intellectual atmosphere and innovative culture where multidisciplinary minds create and thrive, and where innovation is necessary to every student’s educational goals.
Advancing technology graduate courses are balanced between theory, individual research and practical application to provide a solid foundation of experience for advancement in an evolving field, whether it is Advancing Computer Science, Game Production and Management, Cyber Security or Technology Leadership. By the end of their graduate coursework—culminating in an innovation project rather than the typical thesis—Master of Science candidates will have developed critical evaluation skills enabling them to extend their knowledge into fresh, original areas of inquiry and scholarship.
