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 ( 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 (, or by contacting Professor Stefania Serafin (sts@xxxxxxxx). 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.
