EIC offers an M.S. in Technology and Creative Innovation (MSTCI), bringing together the brightest scholars and professionals from the fields of arts/design, engineering/technology, and business/management in order to build forward-thinking interdisciplinary teams that inspire innovation and move industries forward.
