Miranda Sita, an Integrated Digital Media (IDM) senior, explores her artistic and professional potential thanks to the rewarding possibilities of the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.

As a student at Aviation High School in Seattle, WA, Miranda sought to combine her technology skills and creative ambitions with an education in video production. The faculty and classes in the bachelor's program in Integrated Digital Media (IDM) at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering helped her expand these interests and discover other inventive, dynamic fields like performance art and web design.

Last summer, Miranda enjoyed the opportunity to be both inspirational and creative, shooting a documentary in Nairobi about an exercise program for disadvantaged young women. The broad foundation of IDM courses allowed her to take advantage of several work-study positions with Web and Media Services on campus and video production agencies around New York City. At the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, Miranda is “constantly learning and doing great things” that will allow her to engage the world and innovate her own forms of self-expression.
