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

Subject: MSc in Sound and Music Computing at Aalborg University in
Copenhagen, DK
Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2014
From: Kevin Austin

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

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 wave field 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(at)create.aau.dk). 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
