In “Graduation Project II” students learn to:
- work independently and systematically on a large design project
- apply knowledge and skills acquired during the Creative Technology program in an integrated manner
- autonomously develop and refine new knowledge and new skills
- perform research in an ethical manner
- apply academic principles to understand the research objective and methodology, and design project’s context
- apply lessons learnt from background research
- construct the project’s design space based on stakeholder interaction(s)
- select feasible concept for a product/service specification and realization
- involve stakeholders to (collaboratively) evaluate the product/service
- transfer knowledge in a domain specific environment using appropriate communication modalities
CreaTe students complete their study in the third year with a Graduation Project (GP). The goal of this project is to produce an innovative solution for a posed design question (i.e., research question) that results in a positive effect on people (e.g., end-users, community members). Successful completion of a GP is the proof that the student can function as an independent Creative Technologist at an academic bachelor level. A student individually executes his/her GP, where context and goals are set by a client. Daily supervision is performed by a CreaTe lecturer assisted by a critical observer. The GP consists of two parts: GP I (module 11) and GP II (module12). The GP II goal for the student is:
- select a concept developed in GP I
- develop this concept into a working prototype
- evaluate the prototype by relevant stakeholders identified in GP I
- reflect on the meaning of the graduation work
- write a thesis
GP II has a 2 weeks extension period to complete the report, there is no repair option.
GP II is concluded by a public presentation and defense.
