The Computational Media Design (CMD http://www.cmd.ucalgary.ca/) Graduate Program at the University of Calgary is looking for exceptional MSc/PhD students. Successful applicants will join a small group of researchers who are exploring exciting relationships among art, design, science and technology.

The Computational Media Design Graduate program is composed of the Department of Computer Science, the Faculty of Environmental Design and the Faculty of Arts at the University of Calgary. Students who complete the CMD program earn graduate degrees, either Master of Science or PhD, and are funded throughout their graduate degree.

In the expanding world of multimedia and design there is an increasing need for graduates who can conduct and direct complex projects that combine computing expertise with the creative energies of artists and designers. Numerous opportunities exist for our graduates in companies whose primary business is game design and development, film, TV, web design, simulation, networking, interactive media, and mobile and wearable computing to name just a few. Interest in our graduates also comes from the creative fields of dance, music, theatre and the visual arts.

Our research-based graduate degrees explore the relationships between and among art, design, science and technology. Successful applicants will be supervised by two members of our Faculty (http://www.cmd.ucalgary.ca/people) enabling them to conduct research at the intersection of art, design and computer science.

We are located at the vibrant city of Calgary, an hour drive away from the mountains and lakes of the beautiful Canadian Rockies.
