Sony is thrilled to work with Sheldon Brown, Professor of Visual Arts and Director of the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination at the University of California, San Diego to bring two of his students to NAB this year.
The students from UCSD are media majors in the Visual Arts Dept. The UCSD media major is situated at the intersection of media production, contemporary art practice, media theory and new media research. Students go on to pursue activities that are in any of these areas as well as in new hybrids that help to develop and explore what the new forms of media will become. Part of this experience is garnered by their participation in research activities at UCSD such as the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination and the California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technologies.
“Having our UCSD students work at NAB for the Sony Student Experience program is a wonderful augmentation to their education. It exposes them to the latest developments in this field, a broad array of opportunities that they might pursue and helps initiate their professional network. We also value the students bringing these experiences back to our campus and sharing them with their fellow students and our faculty and staff, improving our program development”, Says Brown.
