CRATEL's course offering Technology: Art and Sound by Design (2007, 2006) consists of lectures and labs, with a focus on artistic philosophy and its application through technology. In the course, students build circuits and interface them to computers, considering how these might contribute to their own artistic creations.
Lectures include guests from artistic and technical disciplines, who stimulate conversations about art, teach about electronics, and challenge common assumptions regarding the relationship between the two.
Labs give a practical, friendly introduction to building circuits and working with sensors.
Students registering for the course are expected to have a solid background in either the arts or electrical engineering, and are not expected to be proficient at both.
