The Electrical Engineering - Arts, Media and Engineering MSc program from Arizona State University has been established as a collaboration between the electrical engineering program at ASU and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts (HIDA).

Visit the official programme website for more information


This Electrical Engineering - Arts, Media and Engineering MSc program from Arizona State University  is available both for the MS and the PhD students admitted to this program, who take two-thirds of their course, research and thesis credits from the electrical engineering and one-third of the credits from the arts, media and engineering program.

The arts, media and engineering (AME) program represents an ambitious interdisciplinary research community at ASU that is focused on the parallel development of media hardware, software, content and theory. AME research addresses the discontinuity that exists between media content and media technologies through a paradigm shift in media and arts training. The objective is to produce a new kind of hybrid graduate student who draws creativity from the arts and methodology from engineering sciences. AME trains students to integrate principles of digital signal processing and multimedia computing with artistic ideas and objectives, with the goal of enabling new paradigms of human-machine experience that directly address societal needs and facilitate knowledge.

Career Opportunities

Graduates are able to apply new ideas, theories and systems related to the intersection of media arts and electrical engineering. The transdisciplinary nature of this program allows art, media and engineering graduates to connect electrical engineering signals and systems constructs to multimedia computing, digital communication, immersive augmented reality and virtual reality experiences, and data visualization.

Career examples include:

  • augmented and virtual reality researcher
  • computer systems engineer
  • electrical engineering professor
  • systems software engineer
