The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Bhavna graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, focusing in Digital Media and Human-Computer Interaction. Upon graduation, she also received a Certificate in Social & Personality Psychology from the same university. Her theoretical knowledge is bolstered by her work in both HCI and Computer Graphics research, and is complemented by her drive to continually create. From an early age, Bhavna has been gifted with great imagination, and she aspires to bring to reality the fantastic worlds and myriad emotions evoked by digital media.
As she embarks on her final semester as a student in the Master of Entertainment Technology program at Carnegie Mellon University's Entertainment Technology Center, Bhavna hopes to expand her knowledge of the video game and film industry and pipeline. She looks forward to ultimately finding a job where she can fulfill her passions for research, technology, and creation, while working with a diverse team of like-minded technologists and artists.
Outside of school, Bhavna is a gamer, an avid reader, a frequent concert-goer, and a fan of all kinds of music. She has been trained in Carnatic (Indian Classical) singing since an early age, and enjoys attending live performances, especially those where innovative technologies and methods are used to facilitate interaction between the performer and the audience.
