Students working on projects realated to VR, AR, Game Design, Motion Graphics, Video, 3D modeling, or other graphic-intensive projects are welcome to use the space. To get card access to the lab, either get permission from your current ATLAS instructor/professor or contact Ian Hales at ian.hales@colorado.edu.


What are you going to do after you graduate?

Why not continue what you started in TAM!

Last fall we launched a new Masters of Science Track in Creative Technology and Design (CTD) that is a great program for anyone who wants to work in the digital media and creative technology field. You can read more about the program and the application process here or e-mail Ruscha.Cohen@Colorado.Edu


The TAM Program Has Moved!

Come find us in ATLAS Room 231

As if the beginning of a new semester wasn't hectic enough, the TAM Program has moved into a new, BIGGER, office suite! The good news is, the new TAM office suite is still in the ATLAS building and is just a few feet down the hall from its former location. Come find us in room 231 and check out all of our new digs! We have more computers for creative work, more table space for colaboration, a comfy sitting area, a balcony, and there's more fun stuff on the way! All of the TAM faculty and staff have moved into the space so finding the person you're looking for should be just as easy as it was before.

Hope to see you soon!
