About this minor

Are you interested in the connection between Art, Design & Technology?

Then join Minerva Art Academy's DAT minor. Here students from all kinds of disciplines come together to create works that bring together art, design and technology. DAT minor delivers a module (30ECTS) in artistic technology research, which encourage semester 6 students. Students from all studies are welcome as a good mix of backgrounds gives a fertile ground to grow on.

Our world is driven by technological developments that spark societal change. Artists and designers critically reflect on and use these new technologies in their work. Interdisciplinary working conditions are becoming the norm especially in the fields of art, design and science. During DAT Minor you will learn technological and artistic skills necessary to support your project. In doing so, you will develop critical thinking towards our rapidly evolving technological landscape and the use of digital techniques.

Today's world is driven by technological developments that spark societal change. Artists, designers and technological driven people critically reflect on and use these new technologies in their work.
