The Marriott Library has teamed up with faculty from the University of Utah’s Entertainment Arts and Engineering Master Games Studio to present three public lectures during spring semester 2012. The theme for the lecture series is Video Games: Where Technology Meets Art.
Combining faculty from The School of Computing and Film and Media Arts, EAE offers undergraduate and graduate emphases in game development and study. Students of the EAE Master Games Studio study and build games that push the state of the art and question how games are made and played.
