Entertainment Technology Center

The ETC is the premiere professional graduate program for interactive entertainment as it’s applied across various fields. Our unique, two-year Master of Entertainment Technology (MET) degree was founded as a joint venture between Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science and the College of Fine Arts. The MET is currently considered a terminal degree.

The ETC was founded in 1998 with Randy Pausch and Don Marinelli as the co-directors. The faculty and staff collaborated to articulate our academic mission, which focuses on educational goals and creative development. We also created an R&D Agenda exploring transformational games, innovation by design, and interactive storytelling. Throughout, we work to prepare students to graduate as creative professionals.
