This IGERT award at the Arts, Media and Engineering at Arizona State University will develop research and training mechanisms for the creation of a new class of media scientists. These scientists will produce new approaches for the integration of computational elements and digital media in the physical human experience. Their work will result in experiential media systems hybrid physical-digital environments that address significant challenges in key areas of the human condition such as health, education and everyday living.
IGERT is a nationwide National Science Foundation program intended to meet the challenges of equipping U.S. Ph.D. students in the sciences and engineering with the interdisciplinary background, deep knowledge in a chosen discipline, and the technical, professional, and personal skills needed for the career demands of the future. The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate education by establishing innovative new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
