Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering focused on Sound and Music Computing

Please excuse replication.

Beginning Fall 2014, Aalborg University Copenhagen offers a Master of
Science (MSc) in Engineering focused on Sound and Music Computing
(http://media.aau.dk/smc). A limited number of spaces are available.
Enrollment is free for EU citizens.

This two-year master's education provides proficiency in the
foundations of audio and music technologies, such that graduates can
actively contribute to advancing the current generation. Coursework
includes: sound analysis, synthesis and processing; music perception
and cognition; physics based sound synthesis and control; novel
interfaces for musical expression; sound for multimodal environments;
sonic interaction design; and music informatics and intelligence.

Aalborg University works by "problem based learning" (PBL), in which
each semester combines classwork with project work to increase the
extent and depth to which students interact with the subject matter,
as well as the faculty. With this unique approach to learning,
students gain considerable experience solving real problems
individually and in groups, and with collaboration by members of the
faculty. Furthermore, there are many resources available for projects
at Aalborg University Copenhagen, including high-end facilities and
equipment, such as: an anechoic chamber; a virtual reality setup with
motion capture, and a system of 24 surround sound speakers; an
augmented cognition lab with equipment for measurement
biophysiological signals such as electroencephalography (EEG) and
electromyography (EMG); an electronic and prototyping lab with 3D
printing and laser cutting facilities; and a 64 channel wavefield
system array.

A limited number of tuition waivers for students outside of the EU/EEA
area may be available. Please note that you must inquire via email by
February 15th, 2014 if interested in a tuition waiver. For more info,
