The Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University offers a unique two-year Master of Entertainment Technology (MET) degree. Through our curriculum, we emphasize leadership, innovation and communication by creating challenging experiences where students learn how to collaborate, experiment, and iterate solutions.

There are three variations to the standard curriculum requirements:

– Integrated Co-Op: during the second year of study (semesters 3 or 4) students can apply for a semester academic co-op with a company.
– Student-Defined Semester: after the first semester of study, students can apply for one student-defined semester of study in Pittsburgh during which they take four courses.
– Accelerated Master’s Program: students accepted into the ETC through an accelerated master’s program from an ETC-approved undergraduate program complete the first semester curriculum, followed by two project course semesters. (CMU CS / NUS CS)

ETC students can take specific sets of courses to graduate with a concentration in a distinct area of study (game design, themed entertainment or interactive storytelling). Students can do either a co-op or a student-defined semester, but they cannot do both. Students in an accelerated master’s program are not eligible for co-ops, student-defined semesters or concentrations. The varying routes through the MET enable students to make the most of their educational opportunities while they’re at the ETC. The ETC curriculum balances educational goals, professional development, and engaging experiences; as our students learn, work and play.
