Computational Media and Arts (CMA) are ubiquitous in our daily life and we see them in movies, games, museums, advertisements, news, and many other media experiences. The rapid development of information technology such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, data science, drones, robots, new materials, and displays and human-computer interaction has changed the landscape of computational media and arts. They can be used not only for entertainment but also for education. New opportunities within computational media and the arts emerge on a regular basis. AR-based and AI-generated art is gaining popularity and has shown great potential.

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD.) Programme in Computational Media and Arts aims to integrate art and technology for education and research. They will focus on emotional appeal and visual communication using the latest technology such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), AI-generated art, infographics, and data visualization. They will promote the interplay of art and technology utilizing state-of-the-art technology in an effort to create social impact.

The PhD. Programme aims to train students in acquiring the knowledge and skills to conduct original research related to computational media and arts. A PhD graduate will demonstrate mastery of knowledge in computational media and arts and will be able to generate new knowledge making a substantial scientific contribution to the discipline. Students’ original works will be exhibited at art galleries, auditoriums, museums, and even within HKUST, and published in academic journals and conferences such as ACM SIGGRAPH, ACM CHI, IEEE VR, and IEEE VIS.
