Game design, interactive arts, interactive media is a new emerging inter- and multi-disciplinary field that combines technology, art, design, engineering, science, and business. This new emerging discipline is what the members of GUII Lab at Northeastern University research, teach, and practice.
Our research vision is to look into the new emerging discipline broadly and multidisciplinary. We have a strong focus on games, but are concerned with any playable technology. Our vision extends to innovating the field by creating new technologies, designs, and methodologies.
In our education we integrate the disciplines and allow students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to mix and experience the world of arts, computer science, design, and engineering to harness the skills needed to build their careers within this area. We let students gain the necessary experience with co-ops, capstone projects, and our industry involvement – nationally and internationally.
