The Art and Technology area has dedicated labs and state-of-the-art facilities for the production of 3D models, 3D animations, interactive and robotic art, game art, internet art, large-format prints, moving image art, bio art, virtual reality works, and collaborative spaces for the development of new forms.

Type A 3-D printers in the A & D Design Studio and Epilog Laser as well as Lulzbot, Ultimaker 2 etc.

Lab Space

  • New Media Robotics Lab (156 Hopkins Hall): a full suite of software and hardware options with 20 PC workstations supporting Arduino microcontroller programming, MAX MSP, and  Jitter software, Processing, Maya, C4D 3D modeling, Full Adobe suite; Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere etc.
  • Hopkins 160: Kinect workstations, Electronics test equipment such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, soldering workstations, breadboards, frequency generators, and equipment for student check out, including Wacom tablets, camera and video equipment, and projectors.
  • Classroom Computer Labs: (Hopkins 356 & 354) Mac and PC workstations, and scanners. Software includes Maya, C4D 3D modeling software, MAX MSP, and  Jitter software, Processing, Adobe Creative Suite.
  • The Art & Tech Collaboratory (167 Hopkins Hall) is a combination work and exhibition space used by undergraduates to experiment and create installations.
  • The Living Art Eco Lab – Currently in development, the lab will create an innovative living art and ecology space as a physical lab and as an intellectual hub to explore the intersections of art, ecology, biology, and sustainability, among other fields.
  • The university also provides Adobe Creative Suite access for all students and faculty on their personal devices.

Shared Resources

  • The Emerging Technology Studio through the College of Arts & Sciences Technology Services, is a space where students and faculty alike can get hands on with the latest technology, without having to take on the high costs associated with the technology itself.  This includes virtual and augmented reality technology.  The Emerging Technology Studio (ETS) is located in the Hopkins Hall Annex 180.
  • The digital print lab in Hopkins Hall Photo Cage (3rd Floor) offers large format Canon printers, and the Scanning Lab offers film negative scanning and large format scanners.
  • The Green Screen Lighting Lab  (Hopkins 162) is jointly administered with the Photography area.  This space provides backdrops, lighting, green screen suits, and gloves and allows our students to videotape and experiment with chroma keying and compositing.
  • The Studios for Art & Design Research is a shared fabrication lab facility located on the 1st floor of Hopkins Hall.  Equipment includes a full woodshop with tools for check out, Epilog laser cutters, a 4 x 8 foot CNC router, and four Type A 3-D printers, a MakerBot Replicator 2X, Lulzbot, Ultimaker 2.
  • The first floor lobby and hallway feature track lighting and installed video monitors and are used each semester for Art & Technology exhibitions where our students display their artwork and research from the semester.
