Design & Technology Mission Statement

Design & technology are essential elements in creating theatre. At the University at Buffalo we are as proud of our process as we are proud of our productions. In the classroom you learn to recognize your inspiration, analyze it, connect it to the script, and communicate your vision. In the Center for the Arts you work with professionals to realize those ideas, through the execution of the production process. Student designers and technicians work side by side with faculty directors and designers, and with the CFA staff. We are proud of our program's ability to provide students with challenging and sophisticated opportunities to learn in the classroom and apply that learning through the actual process of designing, building and managing departmental productions in a variety of venues. Many of our students have received national recognition for their work in this program and many have been awarded full scholarships to go on to prestigious graduate level design programs.
