Our studio-based curriculum is complemented by an excellent internship program with host sites in all areas of educational technology and media.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

If you’ve ever wanted to design robotic controls, invent new methods of generating green energy,  expand the boundaries of mobile communication, or apply your specialized skills to any number of other electrical products and systems, Electrical and Computer Engineering might be the course of study for you.

Game Center

The NYU Game Center is dedicated to the exploration of games as a cultural form and game design as creative practice. Our approach to the study of games is based on a simple idea: games matter. Just like other cultural forms – music, film, literature, painting, dance, theater – games are valuable for their own sake. Games are worth studying, not merely as artifacts of advanced digital technology, or for their potential to educate, or as products within a thriving global industry, but in and of themselves, as experiences that entertain us, move us, explore complex topics, communicate profound ideas, and illuminate elusive truths about ourselves, the world around us, and each other.

Game Innovation Lab

The Game Innovation Lab brings together faculty and students from NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering  doing research focused on games as an innovation challenge. The Lab’s emphasis is on the technical/engineering/science side of games and simulations. Sample projects include user interface innovation (sensor-based tracking, multi-touch), network and video quality research, and research on games for learning.

Games for Learning

Create, use, and evaluate digital games for the specific purpose of learning. This degree will prepare you to use evidence-based research to facilitate the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of programs that integrate games in a broad range of formal and informal learning settings

Institute for Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship

The Institute for Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (IIIE@Tandon) serves as the focal point for all research, educational, and service activities in support of Tandon’s goal to integrate Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship into its academic culture and to advance student and faculty appreciation of and skills in inventiveness, innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurial and design thinking.

Integrated Design & Media

IDM is a program combining artistic inquiry with scientific research and technological practice to explore the social, cultural and ethical potentials of emerging technologies.

Interactive Media Arts

The IMA program starts from the proposition that computation — the ability to code, learn new software, manipulate data, and create physical + digital interactions — is an essential creative capability, and that students who master those capabilities will be well-placed to invent the future.

Located in the world-renowned Tisch School of the Arts, the IMA program offers a rigorous and exploratory course of study that teaches students fluency in many forms of digital interactivity, alongside an education in both the arts and liberal arts.

Interactive Telecommunications Program

ITP is a two-year graduate program located in the Tisch School of the Arts whose mission is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies — how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people's lives.

The Marron Institute of Urban Management

The NYU Marron Institute conducts innovative applied research, working with cities to take on critical challenges of urban living. Started with a generous gift from Donald B. Marron, the Institute operates on a model of academic venture capital in which the faculty who run research programs receive seed funding. Faculty members use seed funds to develop their programs, hire research staff and build portfolios of externally-funded projects that have the potential to improve outcomes in cities. Currently, the Marron Institute has four major research programs focused on urban planning, environmental health, civic analytics, and public sector performance and innovation.

Music and Audio Research Laboratory

MARL brings together scholars from music theory, technology and composition, computer and information science, interactive media and media studies, to explore the intersection between music, computation and science.
