MTEC 3140-OL98 – Topics & Perspectives in Emerging Technology

MTEC 3140-OL98 – Topics & Perspectives in Emerging Technology

This course is about understanding our role in both the propagation and dismantling of societal values through media production and consumption. It is also about recognizing the power and responsibility we each have as creators and consumers of media and technology to make sure we are building the future that aligns with the world we want to see.

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.

MTEC1101-OL18 Emerging Media, Fa2020

MTEC1101-OL18 Emerging Media, Fa2020

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.

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.

MTEC2210 Game Design and Interactive Media, FA2020

MTEC2210 Game Design and Interactive Media, FA2020

This course offers a cross-disciplinary foundation for the design of games and interactive multi-media technology for artists, designers and technologists. Students will learn human-centered design principles and apply these methodologies to collaborative team-based projects across web, mobile and games. Using case studies, brainstorming processes, and rapid analog and digital prototyping, students learn design thinking and problem-solving techniques to enhance usability, incorporate sensory experience, influence perception, increase appeal, and make more effective interactive design decisions.

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 :)
