Further Your Education
Educational opportunities with graduate studies in Virtual Technology and Design
The University of Idaho’s Master of Science in Integrated Architecture and Design is a great option for students interested in continuing their education in virtual technology design.
The master’s program addresses the field’s increasingly intersectional nature and prepares existing professionals to anticipate, respond to and incorporate these developments.
Setting the next stage for your career, the Master’s in Integrated Architecture and Design is a cross-disciplinary, research-based degree program that encompasses the full scope of the College of Art and Architecture, including Virtual Technology and Design, Art and Design, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture and Design and Architecture, and encourages you to go beyond. You’ll take charge of an independent research project rooted in your professional interests under the guidance of a major professor and thesis committee, with the goal of creating an entrepreneurial, action-based solution to a specific, often complex issue facing the design world.
When you choose your master’s emphasis in Virtual Technology and Design, you will focus on:
- Using modeling and simulation to understand the space, time and uncertainties of complex and chaotic socio-techno-ecological systems.
- Understanding the role of humans in highly sophisticated human-coupled systems.
- Redefining human-to-human communication and human-machine interaction facilitated by virtual technologies.
- Project Management. Train the next generation of integrated design team leaders.
- Embedding world-building, modeling, simulation, and visualization technologies in your design thinking process.
