In the expanding world of multimedia and design there is an increasing
need for graduates who can conduct and direct complex projects that
combine computing expertise with the creative vision and energies of
artists and designers. Many opportunities exist for our graduates in
companies whose primary business is game design and development, film,
TV, web design, simulation, networking, interactive media, and mobile
and wearable computing. Interest in our graduates also comes from the
creative fields of dance, music, theatre and the visual arts.
Our research-based graduate degrees explore the relationships between
and among art, music, design, science and technology. Successful
applicants will be supervised by two CMD’s Faculty members
(http://www.ucalgary.ca/cmd/people) enabling them to conduct research
at the intersection of music, art, design and computer science.
We are located at the vibrant city of Calgary, an hour drive away from
the mountains and lakes of the beautiful Canadian Rockies.
