Abstract

The College of Engineering and the College of Fine Arts at UNLV are collaborating in the creation of an interdisciplinary program in Entertainment Engineering and Design. In one of the first classes that has been offered in the program, the students learn materials science fundamentals through applications in basic fabrication techniques. Combining traditional lecture sessions from engineering and studio sessions from fine arts, the students work in teams on projects derived from the entertainment industry. This paper describes the format of the course, the projects that the students are assigned and how the course will fit into the overall curriculum of the new program.
