School of Arts, Media and Engineering

Arts, Media and Engineering is a collaborative initiative between the ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the ASU Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. We are a leading transdisciplinary program in digital media.

Discover why Arts, Media and Engineering is right for you.

Arts, Media, and Engineering empower students to: 

• Be authors, creators, inventors of emerging computational media technologies, not just consumers.  
• Know how to make video, sound, light, and objects move and interact, but also know when to do that.   
• Have the technical power to animate media and objects, but also the judgment of why to exercise that power.

We give students the means to imagine how our world -- thoroughly infused with computational logic from our banks to our phones to the clothes we wear — could function other than the way it does, but to also the means create those alternatives. 

The working world tomorrow is not for those who can only do what they are told — we make robots for that — but to think another world is possible, and then to show how it can be made.
