Radically interdisciplinary, ATLAS academic programs nurture robust design and technical skills, while providing students with the flexibility to exercise their own curiosity and realize their creative vision.

Graduates of ATLAS programs go on to careers in a wide range of fields, including engineering, user interface/user exp computer science, the humanities, engineering, art, the natural sciences, music and design (learn about our faculty and graduate students).

Many master’s students take advantage of opportunities to work with faculty members in their research labs and studios (learn about our labs and studios). 

Graduates of the professional MS program in Creative Technology & Design pursue careers in design, technology and social impact fields. Although the MS tracks in Creative Industries and Social Impact are oriented to professional development, several graduates have gone on to doctoral programs.

PhD alumni work as researchers in industry and government, and as faculty members in academia (learn about our alumni).

For those seeking a graduate experience with a vibrant, interdisciplinary academic community of creative designers, engineers and inventors, ATLAS is the place.

ATLAS faculty interests are broad, including e-textiles, human-robot interaction, game design, art and design.
