Gaming and media design

In collaboration with the IU Media School and the School of Fine Arts, the Student Technology Center (STC) has customized two locations for advanced gaming and media design and development. Franklin Hall 052 and Fine Arts 215 both feature high-performance gaming systems with virtual reality and advanced graphic capabilities.

In addition to standard STC software, these locations also offer software for gaming and game development. Featured titles include Adobe Creative Cloud, AutoDesk 3D, Battle.NET, League of Legends, Steam, Unity, and Unreal Engine.

3D printing labs

While 3D printing once seemed like a novelty, it has become a valuable tool—especially for scanning and reproducing delicate artifacts for instruction in fields ranging from the life sciences and engineering to archeology and fine arts. Visit the 3D printing lab in Wells Library 401 (IU Bloomington) or The Idea Garden (Hine Hall 1P 106 at IUPUI) to take advantage of IU’s 3D printing facilities.
