The Entertainment Engineering and Design program focuses on building a strong foundation in entertainment principles from the beginning of the students’ freshman year, emphasizing projects that involve hands-on fabrication and visual communication skills.
The first two years of the program focus on providing students with the skills needed to understand EED principles. Students take English, math, and science in addition to basic material science and artistic design principles, all of which form the foundation for the EED program. Students are engaged in projects during these first two years that help develop collaboration, analysis, planning and design skills. These skills are emphasized throughout their college career.
As students progress through the program, they have the opportunity to intern with entertainment companies such as Cirque du Soleil and Wet Design. As upper classmen, the students focus on specific areas within the entertainment industry.
