We are the Research Center for Digital Media

at the NYU School of Engineering.

The Brooklyn Experimental Media Center (BxmC) provides an interdisciplinary environment for media research at NYU School of Engineering, partnering faculty and students from the Integrated Digital Media program with collaborators from NYU School of Engineering, NYU, CUSP, New York City, and beyond. Our research combines experimental practices in media arts and engineering, constantly modifying industry-standard technologies and creating new ones.

In addition to our academic programs, the BxmC serves as a connector for students to find internships and jobs in the field of Digital Media. Students work with faculty on BxmC research projects or are connected directly with professionals in NYC.  The BxmC has a close relationship with the NYU School of Engineering Small Business Incubator to provide students with opportunities for internships and start-up development in the ever-growing NY tech-start up scene.

Housed in downtown Brooklyn, the BxmC is co-located with partners from the Tisch School of the Arts, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and the NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP).

The new studio like tech space features  labs, multi-media classrooms, student exhibition space, a black box theatre, an audio studio and mixing booth, an equipment checkout room, physical computing workspace, a large lecture room, human computer interaction labs, and collaborative work spaces for students to grow and experiment.  Gensler Architects, NYU Facilites Management,and all of the departments involved worked very hard to make this space the hub for the next generation of technology at NYU.
