The program is jointly offered by the Department of Computational Arts (CA), and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). It  provides highly qualified students with the opportunity to do specialized hybrid research work in a program that uniquely combines computational science and artistic practices.

Work in digital media focuses on a broad range of current and emerging forms of digitally supported media, with applications that range from computer games to interactive art.

Across all three digital media graduate degrees, in both courses and project development, students will work within a shared environment that enables them to develop expertise complementary to their research specialization in computational science or artistic practice.
