Computational Media and Arts

项目介绍

Computational Media and Arts (CMA) are ubiquities in our daily life and we see them in movies, games, museums, advertisements, news, and many other media experiences. The rapid development of information technology such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, data science, drones, robots, new materials and displays and human-computer interaction has changed the landscape of computational media and arts. They can be used not only for entertainment but also for education. New opportunities within computational media and the arts emerge on a regular basis. AR-based and AI-generated art is gaining popularity and has shown great potential.

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programs in Computational Media and Arts aim to integrate art and technology for education and research. They will focus on the emotional appeal and visual communication using the latest technology such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), AI-generated art, infographics and data visualization. They will promote the interplay of art and technology utilizing state-of-the-art technology in an effort to create social impact.

The PhD Program aims to train students in acquiring the knowledge and skills to conduct original research related to computational media and arts. A PhD graduate will demonstrate mastery of knowledge in computational media and arts and will be able to generate new knowledge making a substantial scientific contribution to the discipline. Students’ original works will be exhibited at art galleries, auditoriums, museums and even within HKUST, and published in academic journals and conferences such as ACM SIGGRAPH, ACM CHI, IEEE VR, and IEEE VIS.

The MPhil Program aims to train students to gain knowledge and skills on computational media and arts such as 3D animation, studio art, computational art, games development, information art and so on. Students would be capable of creating computational media and arts using advanced technologies. An MPhil graduate should demonstrate sound working knowledge of related issues in the discipline so that he or she will be an expert in his/her expertise whether as an individual or as an employee.
