Many master’s students take advantage of opportunities to work with faculty members in their research labs and studios

Graduates of the professional MS program in Creative Technology and Design pursue careers that blend technical skills with design and social impact fields. The MS tracks in Creative Industries and Social Impact are primarily oriented toward professional development; nevertheless, several graduates have gone on to doctoral programs.

PhD alumni work as researchers in industry and government, and as faculty members in academia. Learn what ATLAS PhD alumni are doing now.
