MSc in Sound and Music Computing at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, DK

Please excuse cross-posting.

In its second year, Aalborg University Copenhagen offers a Master
of Science (MSc) in Engineering focused on Sound and Music Computing
(http://media.aau.dk/smc). The new academic year starts in September 2015.
A limited number of spaces are available. Enrolment 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 machine listening.

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.

For a number of years, Copenhagen has ranked high in international
surveys for its quality of life.

More information can be found at the education website
(http://media.aau.dk/smc), or by contacting Professor Stefania Serafin
(sts@xxxxxxxxxxxxx). To start in September 2015, the application
deadline is April 1st.

A very limited number of tuition waivers for students outside of the EU/EEA
area may be available. For more info, see
