What Kinds of Jobs Do MAT Graduates Obtain?

Media Arts and Technology graduates move on to a wide variety of positions in industry, academia, government, and private practice as researchers, engineers, software developers, designers, artists, faculty members, and more. Many MAT Master's students have gone on to PhD programs at UCSB and elsewhere. Our PhD graduates so far have gone into academia. We have MAT alumni working in the computing industry, in audio companies, in the music business, in startup companies, and as practicing artists.
