Media Arts & Technology (MAT)
“Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.”
– Walt Disney
Combining art, science, engineering, and theory, Media Arts and Technology (MAT) provides students with a combination of tools that prepare them for leadership roles in artistic, engineering, production/direction, and educational contexts.
The cross-disciplinary program fuses emergent media, computer science, engineering, and digital art and offers an unparalleled opportunity to work at the frontiers of art, imaging science, and technology, where new art forms are born and new expressive media are invented. Students explore the limits of what is possible in technologically sophisticated art and media, both from an artistic and an engineering viewpoint.
In the advanced interactive media component, students learn to apply an array of graphic animation, videos and images in a variety of media contexts such as interactive websites, QR codes and smart phone application generation. This allows students to understand the role of their graphic creations in expressing a concept, promoting a product, or advancing a marketing campaign.
