MTEC3140

In order to become innovative and daring technological leaders in your chosen fields, it is imperative each of you develop a broad understanding of the economic, social, and cultural forces shaping emerging technologies over and beyond the basic mechanics of how these technologies work. Without this foundation, narrow technical background may result skill sets that easily become out of date. The accelerated pace of change merits facility with discussions of the historical, social and cultural contexts of technological evolution. This foundation course will prepare you for research in the emerging technologies of your chosen fields by supplying the necessary background theory, context and methodology. This foundation course will prepare you for research in the emerging technologies of you chosen fields by supplying the necessary background theory, context and methodology. Since the course does not require particular technological skills and experience, students of diverse technological programs will be able to take part in it.

Ins and Outs Of Physical Computing

Ins and Outs Of Physical Computing

An introduction to interactive technology with a focus on how we use technology to express ourselves and interact with our environment. This class will combine a hands-on exploration of sensors and microcontrollers with concepts of interaction design employing a structured design process. Students will work on creative group projects and provide on-line documentation of their work. An array of sensing technologies from simple switches to video tracking will be introduced. Students will use the simple programming of microcontrollers to process incoming data from sensors.

Introduction to Interactive 3D Environments Programming

Introduction to Interactive 3D Environments Programming

This course provides students with technical foundations and opportunity to work with state of the art virtual reality (VR) systems and interactive 3D environments. The foundations covered in this course apply to computer games, 3D film production, immersive environments, and virtual scenery for live performance. Students will be prepared to apply and extend basic skills in modeling, scripting and programming. Emphasizes production, teamwork, analysis of interactive 3D systems, and applications-driven user experiences with assessment of aesthetic orientation.

Media Design Foundation

Media Design Foundation

A cross-disciplinary foundation presenting design principles and applied concepts for all creative disciplines, including media design, computing, and engineering. Using case studies, brainstorming, and idea generation, students learn creative thinking and problem solving techniques to enhance usability, influence perception, increase appeal, and make better design decisions.

Introduction to Interactive Media Technologies Production Practices

Introduction to Interactive Media Technologies Production Practices

A hands-on introduction to the applied principles and production techniques used in interactive media development. Students will be introduced to the basic theory, practices, and technology necessary for success in digital media courses, including imaging, sound, video, and animation, as well as, interactive, networked, and physical computing technologies. The structure of this course emphasizes an integrated and creative approach to interactive media with detailed instruction and practice in the technical aspects of production that go hand in hand with critical academic thinking.
