MTEC 1101 HD90 Emerging Media Foundation
Description: An introduction to interactive multimedia technology with a focus on interdisciplinary, project based, cooperative learning. Students will be immersed in the protocols and processes of the interactive media technologies design process: idea development, presentation, prototyping and production, which will serve them in the face of rapid changes in technology. Students will explore basic theoretical and applied concepts of audio, visual, tactile and interaction design through creative group projects, visiting professionals and on-line documentation of their work.
4 contact hours
Required skills: Familiarity with some aspect of emerging technology within one of our concentrations (music tech, game development, physical computing, media computation; a well-established syllabus will be made available)
MTEC 2280 HD95 Ins and Outs (of physical computing)
Description: An introduction to interactive technology with a focus on how we use technology to express ourselves and interact with our environment. This class combines a hands-on exploration of basic components of media, audio and control circuits. Students also develop interfacing technologies from simple switches to multidimensional sensors, integrated circuits and microcontrollers. Students use a scripting environment to program microcontrollers in order to process incoming data from sensors for control of media systems
4 contact hours
Required skills: Ability to program Arduino and wire in peripheral controllers, devices, and sensors (a well-established syllabus will be made available)
