The Department of Visualization is built around advancing the art, science and technology of visualization. Academic programs within the department include the M.S. in Visualization and B.S. in Visualization, totaling approximately 280 students. MFA and PhD programs in Visualization are in the proposal stages. The mission of the 14 member faculty is to engage in and support innovation in teaching, research, and creative works across a wide range of areas where computing can be used to create visual experiences. The academic programs and the faculty comprise one of the few institutions in the world where both the science and the art of visualization are pursued as an indivisible endeavor.
The reputation of our graduates as skilled technical and visual problem solvers has led to the Department of Visualization boasting strong ties to the animation, visual effects, and game industries. Faculty members are recognized for their scholarly contributions ranging from digitally enabled installations to computational modeling and the psychology of perception and environment.
