Silicon Valley East? How Cornell is creating a cutting-edge graduate school from scratch.

“connective media” and “built environment”
Information technology is the common thread through the eight degrees the school plans to offer.
Three will be dual master’s degrees from Cornell and the Technion, based on three “hubs” rather than traditional departments. One hub program, “connective media,” has largely been mapped out — though professors warn that it is subject to change as technology changes — and will deal with designing the mobile, fragmented and endlessly malleable technology that makes everyone a media creator as well as consumer.
