Students benefit from a high-density environment of research-driven faculty and labs, with close faculty mentoring a hallmark of the program. The faculty are internationally recognized artists, scientists, and engineers with a vast range of  complementary areas of expertise.

You will gain hands-on experience within state-of-the-art labs and other facilities, including arts, performance & design studios, motion capture studios, fabrication spaces, perceptual science labs, and more, preparing you for advanced specialization in areas such as experimental telepresence, machine learning and artificial intelligence, physical computing, computer vision, virtual reality and 3D user interaction, spatial computing and responsive environments, robotics, generative and parametric modeling, pattern recognition, artificial life and generative art, interactive stage and dramaturgy, visual perception, and many more.

Research is also supported by faculty affiliations with two Organized Research Units: Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology and the Centre for Vision Research, and other research programs and partnerships including the Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program and the Living Architecture Systems Group.
