Digital Media Design
The Digital Media Design (DMD) program is an interdisciplinary major in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Penn. As a full-fledged Bachelors in Engineering and Science (BSE) degree, it combines major coursework in computer graphics within the Computer & Information Science Department, Communication theory courses from the Annenberg School and Fine Arts courses from Penn's School of Design. The program was designed for students who have an interest in computer graphics, animation, games, and the design of virtual reality environments and interactive technologies.
The program was created in 1998 to educate a new generation of people to work in computer graphics; people who, through a combined education in computer science, art and communications, could collaborate effectively in teams through integrated knowledge and skills. The largest employers of our graduates are DreamWorks Animation, Disney Animation, Electronic Arts, Zynga Games, Microsoft and Pixar.
