NYU Tandon’s Integrated Digital Media program is a STEAM engine, driving creative practice, experimentation, media design, and engineering. Our projects include using motion capture technology to reimagine theatrical performance; harnessing AR/VR to radically change the way people engage with information, entertainment, the environment, and one another; creating citizen science tools to empower New York City residents; and helping NASA develop next-generation user interfaces for space exploration. We are constantly modifying industry-standard technologies and creating new ones, and we’re doing it across multiple sectors including media and entertainment, health, training and education, tourism, commerce and retail, engineering and design, architecture and construction, and civic technology and smart cities.
With access to a virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR) lab, fully equipped motion-capture facility, recording studio, and countless other resources, our students and faculty are bridging the gap between culture and technology in new and exciting ways.
