Claude Cadoz established in 2003 and manages the Master degree specialty AST (Art, Science, Technology) of the Master degree IC2A (Engineering for Cognition, Creation and Learning) with four Grenoble higher education and research establishments : Grenoble INP, Université Joseph Fourier,  Université Pierre Mendès-France, Université Stendhal.


Main objective

Digital and Computer Technology have introduced powerful building and conceptual tools for artistic creation and allowed new fundamental dimensions for exploring art, whether concerning object nature and content (musical, visual, multimedia), or object design. This implies new ways for research and development, in which scientific and artistic work are done hand in hand. This training is aimed at students with strong background in engineering sciences, computer technology, physics, signal processing, etc... and who wish to acquire the scientific and technological knowledge and methodology for musical and visual creation.
