Innovative Media and Visualizations
The Art, Science and Technology of Digital Media
The convergence of digital arts, science, technology and business has driven a major shift in how information is now conceived, produced, delivered and consumed. Digital Media is rapidly distinguishing itself as the fastest most effective way to convey a complex idea in a simple and intuitively understandable fashion. It has evolved from an artist’s tool to a powerful animation and visualization tool used in communications, business, entertainment, engineering and the sciences. In addition to the field of entertainment, digital media has distinguished itself as an important ally in the dynamic world of scientific, technical and commercial communications.
The Digital Media and Design department is shaped by its commitment to four areas of education and research:
- Entertainment & Digital Art: film, television, interactive media and digital game design
- Business: marketing, branding, advertising, social media and entrepreneurship
- STEM: visualization and data analysis
- Digital Humanities & Digital Social Sciences: integration of new technologies with research, teaching and outreach
