Informatics DIgital Media Track

Do you want to:

Work as an illustrator?  Build accessible electronic products? 

Work in the video gaming industry?  Create complex 2D and 3D graphics?   

If yes, then the Informatics Digital  Track might be for you!

The program fosters an appreciation of both artistic and technical aspects of multimedia and enables students to focus on developing in-depth skills in either the technical or artistic domain, or both. Students with strong technical skills will become versed in the language of art so they can collaborate with artistic colleagues. The courses take a project based learning approach where students have opportunities to design, model, and implement their ideas.

The Multimedia Track is an interdisciplinary investigation of the creative use and application of technology in digital art. Students engage in the production of electronic objects and interfaces, moving images, 3D modeling and animation, digital games, digital imaging, rapid prototyping, Internet art, and sound. Here is one example of a student project.
