My Courses

MTEC 1102-OL22, Production Practices, FA2020

MTEC 1102-OL22, Production Practices, FA2020

This course is a hands-on introduction to the best practices for production techniques used in games, interactive and tangible media product development. Students will acquire a deep understanding of content generation, technology pipeline and delivery systems for creating web, mobile, games, virtual & augmented reality, interactive installation and museum display, wearables and physical computing. Students will learn the roles and responsibilities, build the skills for each role, as well as apply the design and development processes for each medium. They will be introduced to design thinking and rapid prototyping techniques, as well the green light process essential to bringing a product to market. The structure of this course emphasizes an integrated and multi-modal approach to game design, interactive media and physical computing with modeled instruction and practice in the technical aspects of production.

MTEC2120 – Interactive Media System Design

MTEC2120 – Interactive Media System Design

A nontraditional approach to the articulation of design techniques with different types of interactive media and an introduction to the theories, models and frameworks for designing interaction with sound and screen. Students sketch and prototype systems for the management and delivery of future media through multimedia visual programming languages.

MTEC 1001, Game Design & Interactive Media Skills Lab, Spring 2020

MTEC 1001, Game Design & Interactive Media Skills Lab, Spring 2020

This lab-based course offers supportive instruction and training for digital media design and content delivery using a variety of software programs and platforms. Topics covered include but are not limited to raster graphics, vector graphics, 3D modeling, digital audio, and digital video production and editing. The class offers comprehensive theoretical and practical instruction of the tools and techniques for digital imaging, graphics, video, sound, and interactive design. Specifically, students will be introduced to Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, WordPress, Audacity, Audition, Premiere, and Unity. In addition, workshops have been designed to foster a culture of collaboration and sustainable learning community.

MTEC1101-D290 Emerging Media, Sp2020

MTEC1101-D290 Emerging Media, Sp2020

This course is an introduction to emerging, interactive multi-media technology with a focus on interdisciplinary, project-based, cooperative learning. Students will be immersed in the protocols and processes of emerging and interactive media design, including: idea development, research, documentation, presentation, prototyping, and production, which will serve them in the face of rapid changes in technology. Students will explore basic theoretical and applied concepts of audio, visual, haptic, immersive, sensory and interaction design through creative group projects, visiting professionals, field trips and online documentation of their work.

MTEC1005 Physical Computing Skills, SP2019

MTEC1005 Physical Computing Skills, SP2019

The goal of this course is to allow students to design and build a complete physical computing system. With intensive work on the fundamentals of electronics hardware and software design, students will work with components such as LED, potentiometer, photocell, speaker, servo motor, and the Arduino microcontroller development platform. The course culminates with integration and demonstration of all components to building a fully human-interactive system. Throughout the course there will be emphasis on perspectives that balance engineering practice and aesthetic design.

My Clubs

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

A space to build & playtest creative tech projects. Come make video games, immersive art, AR filters, apps, and literally anything else you can think of— every Thursday @ 1-2pm. All skill levels + majors welcome! (We’re 100% online for Fall 2020! Hang out with us via voice chat on Discord: https://discord.gg/sQUjMN6) Every 2 weeks, we pick a new topic (apps, environment art, interactive fiction, 3D modeling…) and challenge you to make a mini project on it. Each one comes with tutorials, inspiration + download links— so you don’t need any experience to join. Find your dream role, team up with other students for passion projects, have a support system for when you get stuck, and just try something new. Check out our website for free 2D/3D assets, project ideas, scholarships, jobs, and more :)

Citytech E-Sports Club

Citytech E-Sports Club

The Citytech E-Sports club is a community that bring students together who have an interest in competitive gaming and gaming in general. The club aims to build a community where students can socialize, compete and express their passion for gaming and the competitive side to it. Members will be in a friendly environment where games are brought to a competitive level, being able to learn from each other, sharing strategies and developing new knowledge. The club also seeks to be able to compete at collegiate competitions at a national level. Other plans include hosting local prized gaming tournaments in the school itself. We meet every Thursday 12:45 – 2:15 PM in the Voorhees Building room V-321 Got any questions?
