Students who earn a degree in Media Arts and Sciences have been predominantly in residence at the Media Lab, taking classes and doing research.
Some students from other programs at MIT, such as Mechanical Engineering, or Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, do their research at the Media Lab, working with a Media Lab/Media Arts and Sciences faculty advisor, but earn their degrees (such as MEng or an MS in EECS) from other departments.
Rather than accepting funding on a per-project or per-group basis, the Lab asks sponsors to fund general themes; sponsors can then connect with Media Lab research.
These research activities typically take up about half of a student’s time in the degree program.The MIT Media Lab is an antidisciplinary research laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, growing out of MIT's Architecture Machine Group in the School of Architecture.Its research draws from technology, media, science, art and design. As of 2014, the Media Lab had roughly 70 administrative and support staff members.human computer interaction, education and communication, artistic creation and visualization, and designing technology for the developing world.Other research focus includes machines with common sense, sociable robots, prosthetics, sensor networks, musical devices, city design, and public health.
