MTEC3230 – Mixed Reality for Immersive Worlds

MTEC3230 – Mixed Reality for Immersive Worlds

This course will explore the new frontier of virtual, augmented and mixed reality across various professional uses and tools. Students will experiment with designing and developing game-based and interactive projects employing the latest AR, VR, and other reality capture-oriented devices. Students will learn the fundamentals of experiential design, Unity 3D development, VR art creation, and critical thinking in the context of storytelling and content creation specific to these emerging forms. Students will work in small teams on collaborative projects with the latest head-mounted and sensor technology.

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 3175, Experimental Game Design & Development, Fall 2020

MTEC 3175, Experimental Game Design & Development, Fall 2020

This hands-on studio course will focus on the creation of innovative workable prototypes exploring expressive forms of gameplay using a variety of multi-media approaches, methodologies and materials. The aesthetics of game design, including asset and character development, level design, game play experience and delivery systems will be covered. Supplemental readings on the complex interplay between story and game will be explored to analyze effective narrative devices and game mechanics. The class will involve lectures on game theory, design exercises and in-depth analysis of works across commercial, art & social change sectors.
