This Master of Technological Futures is not about deep tech - although

they are levers you can use for change. Instead the programme is about

any disruptive and emerging technologies - that could be about business

models, about social change, about education. There’s a lot of flexibility

to shape something you want - you don’t have to develop an app.

 Bite-sized Learning   

Taking a bite-sized approach to learning makes it easy for you to start using new knowledge and skills today and at the same time build towards what you want for your tomorrow.

Stack your learning. Build your future.

People. Sustainability. Disruptive Technologies. 

 Learn.

Compact yet power-packed with contemporary knowledge and insight, our micro-credentials are ideal for building skills and capabilities to be savvy and strategic about using emerging disruptive technologies and contemporary organisational models. 

If you haven’t studied for a while (or ever), these short sharp micro-credentials are a fantastic way to dip your toe back into learning.

Take a look

 Stack.

Stack a bite-sized micro-credential alongside our other micro-credentials, either with Tech Futures Lab or The Mind Lab and together they add up to bigger, more impactful learning. 

The more you do, the more you’ll be able to connect trends and insights across the key areas essential in the ‘future of work’ and our world. You’ll develop a knack for foresight and systems thinking to enable longer-term planning that’s sustainable and scalable.

 Build.

Our Postgraduate Certificates are designed for deeper dive immersive learning. Build your knowledge base and applied skills to add to the bigger picture you want for yourself, organisation or your community.
