Computation & Media [B.Tech. 4-years duration] would be offered as an interdisciplinary program between Computer Science & Engineering (Ecole Centrale School of Engineering) and the School of Media. Between the two, the student is exposed to courses in the computer languages used in media technology.
Two Tracks would be offered to students:
- Animation and 3-D modelling, virtual and augmented reality, instructional design, game design
- Web design, social media and intelligence, interfaces and interactivity
Media being the lead school in this case, the media industries will be the career focus. Hence, the overall outcome would be in various forms of storytelling. To achieve this outcome, a student will be trained in the understanding the history, growth, and back-end processes of conventional, digital/interactive, social, and adaptive media. Then, the student operates or designs within technological and functional frameworks.
The final offering will be a result of workshopping this interdisciplinary course with the School of Engineering. This joint offering will heavily rely on investment in a cutting edge laboratory that houses animation, editing, gaming, and related software.
