What Makes miLAB Unique?
miLAB focuses on the future of technology. At the same time, the outcomes of our projects are real, working prototypes.
We accept students from multidisciplinary backgrounds to work together in projects teams including interactive media, design, computer science and psychology majors. This combination enables teams to deal with complex challenges from different angles.
miLAB has a dedicated group of mentors who work with our project teams on a regular basis. These mentors are industry leaders who share in our vision and provide an important industry perspective.
miLAB encourages an open, informal, highly collaborative environment within the lab, and in our contacts with industry sponsors. We follow a shared IP philosophy to enable open ended collaboration and development.
Many of miLAB’s research projects address current social issues and the use of technology to promote social or personal change.
