Media Arts & Game Development Labs

Students in the MAGD program work with cutting-edge technologies, including laser cutting, 3D printing, VR/ AR, professional audio and video facilities, and a motion capture studio. Students have ready access to our state of the art equipment, and additional specialized equipment is available for students to checkout. The majority of student courses take place in computer labs outfitted with a combination of Macs and PCs. Though all necessary equipment is provided by the program, students are encouraged to purchase their own computers, software, and other personal equipment, so that they can always be working to improve their craft. Faculty work with students to help them figure out what equipment is best suited to their needs and career goals.
