🗣 We have a *game-changing* announcement to make. 💻🎮🪡

The Art + Design Department in the NC State College of Design will now be known by a new name, the Department of Media Arts, Design and Technology, affectionately known as MADTech. 

This new departmental name change helps communicate the curricular offerings, faculty expertise, and careers that stem from the department. 

Students in the Department of Media Arts, Design and Technology can pursue tracks in gaming and interaction design, animation, and fiber arts. 

For several years, faculty have instructed students on the principles of media arts, design and technology and their relevant applications in society. 

Courses like ADN 311: Creative Coding introduce computer programming to students, allowing them to move beyond the development of purely aesthetic designs to projects that are technically and intellectually forward. 

Further, this shift highlights what those in the program have always known – this isn’t a fine-arts based program. 

This departmental name shift hopes to realign prospective students and faculty with programmatic offerings and prepare graduates for successful careers in the media industry. 

Read more about the name change, the department's goals and what it means for the college in our bio.
