Radically interdisciplinary, ATLAS graduate programs nurture robust design and technical skills, while striving to maximize flexibility for students to explore and develop their unique creative visions.
ATLAS faculty interests are broad, including areas such as e-textiles, human-robot interaction, game design and engineering at the molecular level. Similarly, graduate students hail from a wide range of academic disciplines, including computer science, the humanities, engineering, art, the natural sciences, music and design.
Graduates of the professional MS program in Technology, Media & Society pursue careers in design, technology and social impact fields. 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.
