Where Art and Science Merge
Advances in technology have spurred a modern renaissance in visualization. In the European Renaissance, artists were also scientists, architects, and engineers. Today’s artists combine these older disciplines with new ones, including computer science, videography and psychology.
We train technical artists to work on the collaborative teams necessary to make modern visualizations. Our programs produce leaders in the fields where art and science merge.
The Department of Visualization offers cross-disciplinary programs with faculty expertise including computer graphics, art, design, and visualization and interaction.
The Department of Visualization is dedicated to making advances across multiple platforms and technologies. Our work blends scientific investigation and creative output.
Our department is made up of dedicated faculty, staff and administrators. These people make our programs possible and set students up for success.
The Aggie Difference
Each year, we engage with the Aggie network and professional connections to introduce students to potential employers. Our career fair provides networking opportunities for potential employees and employers.
Our undergraduate students enhance their education by spending one semester away away from the university. We encourage students to travel to Italy or Germany with our study abroad programs, or to intern with a professional visualization company.
Each academic year, our department awards over $40,000 in scholarships. Donors who partner with the Texas A&M Foundation make these scholarships possible.
