At the University of Calgary, we formed the Computational Media Design Program to enable students to conduct research at the intersection of art, music, design and computer science.

The Computational Media Design (CMD) graduate program is composed of the Department of Computer Science, the Faculty of Environmental Design and the Faculty of Arts: School of Creative and Performing Arts - Music and Department of Art.  Students can earn graduate degrees, both Master of Science and PhD. The research-based graduate degrees explore the relationships between and among art, design, science and technology.

In the expanding world of multimedia and design, there is an increasing need for graduates who can conduct and direct complex projects that combine computing expertise with the creative energies of artists and designers. Numerous opportunities exist for our graduates in companies whose primary business is game design and development, film, TV, web design, simulation, networking, interactive media, and mobile and wearable computing to name just a few. Interest in our graduates also comes from the creative fields of dance, music, theatre and the visual arts.
