The goal of MEAT is to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration and to develop creative methodologies.


 

A collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge opportunity for engineering and art majors who want to gain real-world engineering experience while learning to think creatively and analytically to create engaging works of art, the goal of MEAT is to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration and to develop creative methodologies that will enhance the life-long creative practice of both artists and engineers. Students will learn to create art using the MarkerBot, a 3-D plastic printer, as well as learn basic electronics and the Arduino protoyping platform. Teams will be formed based on equal ratios of Engineering and Art students who register for the course. These teams will propose and produce projects that use electronic devices in a functional yet creative way. The teams will produce their projects over the course of the semester with assistance from professors in Engineering and Art. The result of these collaborations will be evaluated based on their functional and creative merits.
