The student handbook for the ETC class that started during the fall 2015 semester.
Imagine working with some of the smartest, most creative people on the planet to produce interactive media that’s entertaining and engaging.
Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) excels at the intersection of technology, art and design. Here creative individuals are challenged to explore, experiment and collaborate to create games, designs and stories using the latest technologies.
The ETC is the premiere professional graduate program for interactive entertainment as it’s applied across a variety of fields. Our unique, two-year, Master of Entertainment Technology (MET) degree is jointly conferred by Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science and the College of Fine Arts. The MET is currently considered a terminal degree.
We excel by creating an educational environment in which interdisciplinary students acquire collaboration, creativity and communication expertise while applying their artistic and technical skills through design-based research projects.
At the ETC, we balance educational goals, professional development, and engaging experiences – or what we refer to as “learn, work, play.” With an emphasis on leadership, innovation and communication, we create challenging experiences through which students learn how to collaborate, experiment and iterate solutions.
The ETC is simply different, we strive to design experiences that educate, engage and inspire.
