Arts, media and engineering

The School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University in collaboration with the Herberger College of Fine Arts (HFCA) has established a concentration in Arts, Media and Engineering. This concentration is available both for the M.S. and the Ph.D. programs (not available for M.S.E or M.Eng.). Students admitted in this program take two-thirds of their course, research, and thesis credits from the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering and one-third of the credits from the Arts, Media and Engineering program.

Research Activities

The Arts, Media and Engineering program (AME, http://ame.asu.edu) represents an ambitious interdisciplinary research community at ASU that is focused on the parallel development of media hardware, software, content, and theory. The AME is a joint effort of the Herberger College of Fine Arts (HCFA) and of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. AME research addresses the discontinuum that exists between media content and media technologies, through a paradigm shift in media and arts training. The objective is to produce a new kind of hybrid graduate students who draw their creativity from the arts and their methodology from engineering sciences. AME trains students to integrate principles of DSP and multimedia computing with artistic ideas and objectives, with the goal of enabling new paradigms of human-machine experience that directly address societal needs and facilitate knowledge.
