The course for responsible technology leadership As graduates, students become decision makers and innovators tackling complex problems requiring a diverse and technology informed skillset and they become professionally equipped to work successfully with, and for, Indigenous Australians. UTS is a focused, University of Technology, which understands how technology interacts with and changes communities, developing responsible, transformative leadership, through impactful partnerships.
The course aims to initiate, develop and showcase students’ professional skills in an individual, career-focussed e-portfolio spanning the degree. Students plan their course and engage in peer and professional career coaching in the core studios to hone their 21st century skills tailored to their career – problem solving, mindful collaboration, adaptive leadership, communication, research, critical thinking - equipping them with social and reflective competencies for our rapidly changing, digitally disrupted and technology enriched enterprises and communities. By teaching students to think and work together in different ways, it enables them to adaptively lead people and teams through complex problems experienced by organisations and society. The Master of Technology course structure assures a minimum engagement with postgraduate subjects equipping students with skills in information technology, engineering, data analytics, or scientific methods. The core studios focus critical reflections on situating the learner in their technological, professional and global context. The Master of Technology core studios are similarly practice and people oriented, however, afford opportunity for explicit exploration of technological solutions to challenges.
Whether students want to thrive in a large organisation or create a start-up, the Master of Technology will provide the expertise to help students get there. The flexible course structure allows students to choose up to two sub-majors, including sub-majors which may be individually configured and named to suit the unique requirements and study plans of every student.
