Goldsmiths, University of London is launching a Centre for Creative and Social Technologies (CAST) to run alongside its existing centres in media, social sciences, arts and the humanities.
According to a release, CAST, which is based in the computing department, offers courses combining research and practical training, “focusing on digital innovation in creative and social technologies”.
The postgraduate students are given the chance to work with CAST’s Innovation Partners, including internships recently at the Wall Street Journal, Telegraph Media Group and the Royal Society of Arts.
Professor Robert Zimmer, co-director of CAST and head of the department of computing added in a release:
Our programmes encourage a hybrid skill set and critical thinking that are necessary for sustainability and creativity in disciplines challenged by the digital revolution.
