The union of arts and engineering has emerged as a significant intellectual, commercial and educational concept and has sparked creative new programs across the planet. The USF Electrical Engineering, Digital Design, and The Arts Certificate is for undergraduate students who are interested in this union, and exploring the overlapping areas of electrical engineering technology and the visual arts. These innovative products and systems are unique and have value because of their form and function – think smartphones and watches, self-guiding vehicles and interactive multimedia. The goal of the four-course EE-Arts Certificate is to provide a path of increasing exposure to and understanding of this powerful combination, with intensive hands-on experience. Professionals skilled in this field have careers in product design, high technology manufacturing, animation/modeling, interactive game design, robotics, package design, and industrial design.
