Carnegie Mellon Portugal program Launches Master of Entertainment Technology

The Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and the Madeira Interactive-Technologies Institute (MITI) at University of Madeira (UMa) jointly provide a two-year program offering Masters of Entertainment Technology degree (MET), under the Carnegie Mellon | Portugal program, sponsored by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT).

This is not a Master of Science nor a Master of Arts or Fine Arts degree—rather a unique, specialized degree program in the interdisciplinary field of entertainment technology. Your diploma will say; Master of Entertainment Technology. The MET is considered a professional, terminal degree. It is the academic pinnacle of studies in this field, thus having greater significance than the M.A. or M.S., and the equivalent academic weight of the M.F.A. and/or M.B.A. degree.

The ETC does not turn artists into technologists, or vice-versa. While some students will be able to achieve mastery in both areas, it is not our intent to have our students master 'the other side.' Instead, we intend for a typical student in this program to enter with mastery or training in a specific area and spend his or her two years learning the vocabulary, values, and working patterns of the other culture. This learning will be evidenced by their ability to work effectively with those who are expert in it.

Scholarships available! - Students admitted to the MET will be eligible for scholarships from company sponsors and the Madeira Science and Technology Center.
