Small, interdisciplinary teams work to create prototyped artifacts under direct faculty supervision


Part of Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center’s core curriculum includes the “project course.” In this course students are arranged into small interdisciplinary teams to create prototyped artifacts under direct faculty supervision. Such artifacts may be a web site, a piece of software, a piece of hardware, a design document, or a number of others. Working with individual faculty members, interdisciplinary teams must design what they are going to create, the mechanisms by which they will create it and then do so.
