The ETC MISSION is to create inclusive and interdisciplinary educational opportunities that prepare students for professional careers through project-centric learning, conservatory instruction, community engagement, and industry collaboration.

The ETC VISION is to shape students into creative leaders who imagine and build exemplary experiences to entertain, educate, transform, and inspire.

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.

At the ETC, 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.
