MFA in Electronic and Time-Based Art at Purdue University.

Through interdisciplinary art practice and research, ETB students 
explore the creative, critical and expressive potential of electronic 
and time-based media such as digital video and sound, real-time computer 
graphics, interactive digital systems, virtual reality, electronic 
circuitry and robotics. Our international faculty promotes an 
environment of innovative and imaginative thinking that connects 
artistic production to the campus body at Purdue and the communities of 
Lafayette/West Lafayette. Through their art practice, students make 
unique contributions to contemporary culture in various forms: public 
interventions and exhibitions, websites, radio shows, films and videos, 
interactive environments, computer games, performances, zines and DIY 
manuals. Experiences both inside and outside the classroom, the ETB 
program challenge students to pair aesthetic sensibility with critical 
thinking, artistic freedom with practical application and technological 
experimentation with cultural awareness. Coursework in ETB is enhanced 
by exhibitions, visiting artist lectures, guest workshops and open 
studio events.

The three year MFA program in Electronic and Time-Based Art focuses on 
each student's personal development in the context of Electronic and 
Time-Based Art, following the structure of the graduate degree in Studio 
Arts in the Department of Art and Design. Graduate students in ETB come 
from many different backgrounds, including visual and performing arts, 
film-making, design and engineering. The interdisciplinary nature of our 
graduate cohorts allows students to easily collaborate on projects, view 
their work through the perspective of another discipline and actively 
engage with the larger research environment at Purdue University.
