Music and Media Technologies (M.Phil. / P.Grad.Dip.)

Course Description

In recognition of a shared interest in Information Technology and a growing awareness of its relevance for music, the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and the Department of Music initiated a Masters Programme in Music and Media Technologies in Trinity in 1996.

A particular feature of this programme is a balanced approach to musical and technological topics. Musically, a strong emphasis is placed on the development of adaptable compositional skills, while technological topics are addressed from both a hands-on workstation/studio exposure and a fundamental mathematical and scientific basis, which focuses on musically relevant issues.

The first year is a self-contained Postgraduate Diploma course which provides the necessary musical and technological skills to allow creative individuals to engage in computer-assisted composition and production, apply software tools for the music and New Media industries and/or enter the arena of 'music-on-screen' production for New Media products.

Continuing to a second year of study toward an M.Phil. degree is an option, which is open to those achieving a sufficient standard in their first year exams. The second year combines first semester taught courses with project work in the second semester, and generally has a greater research orientation. The second semester project can be of a musical or technological nature.

Both programmes cover a wide range of subjects within the general field of music technology, and provide students with a fully professional qualification. The work is intensive and these programmes cannot be undertaken part-time.

This course has been co-funded under the National Development Plan (Graduate Skills Conversion Programme) for EU fee paying students.
