The ETC is the premiere professional graduate program for interactive entertainment as it’s applied across a variety of fields. Our unique, two-year, Master of Entertainment Technology (MET) degree is jointly conferred by Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science and the College of Fine Arts.
The ETC was founded in 1998 with Randy Pausch and Don Marinelli as the co-directors. After an intense immersion semester, students work collaboratively on semester long projects.
Each project course challenges teams of interdisciplinary students to produce working artifacts and playable prototypes. In the tradition of CMU, the emphasis is on making real things that work. Recent projects explore technologies such as Virtual Reality (HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift + Touch), Augmented Reality via Microsoft Hololens and Google’s Tango, to experimental educational applications for tablets.
