The Armstrong Interactive Media Studies Institute (AIMS) develops new approaches in the creation and application of digital technologies that empower individuals and organizations to invent, innovate and collaborate in novel ways.
The AIMS Institute seeks to overcome existing barriers to creativity and interaction that are imposed by geography; the mediums of delivery, exploration, and creation; and institutional structures. Faculty are involved in cutting edge research and application, engaging Miami students in significant global academic and market projects, on-line and in real-time. The AIMS Institute is transdisciplinary, fusing teaching, research, and service into expansive, yet individualized learning.
We believe this approach creates a learning environment where artists, designers, developers, business strategists, writers and new media communicators learn to work collaboratively, with respect, to build solutions to important problems.
