Survey results of the summer internships of the ETC class who will meet degree requirements in 2020.
I've always been excited about computer graphics and interactive entertainment. The ETC program presented a unique opportunity to further develop these interests, and express both my technical background and artistic skills. There were several highlights in this program. At ETC's flagship class, "Building Virtual Worlds", I first encountered virtual reality. It opened my mind to innovative ways of story telling and how technology can unlock our creative potential. I am very appreciative of the ETC program's emphasis on the pragmatic aspects of building entertainment technologies and the collaborations it fostered across diverse skillsets. One of the projects I am most proud of was an independent game I built along with an interdisciplinary team, "Polarity", which won many accolades in the independent games community. After graduation I joined Disney to help shape the future of entertainment.
