About this course

This taught Masters programme in Music Technology, is designed for graduates seeking to combine technological competence with musical creativity and is a response to the increasing demand from Artists, Scientists, Educationalists, and the wider music industry, and digital media sector, for courses which bridge the traditionally perceived Arts-Science divide to produce graduates conversant in both new technologies and their creative application.

Course Description

Comprising taught and research components, the programme is modular and structured over three semesters. The taught component of the programme (Semesters 1 and 2) consists of mandatory and elective modules, the latter offering the student the opportunity to follow a pathway through the course which reflects his/her personal interests. The student has a completely free choice of elective modules, the only requirement being that five modules in total must be taken in each semester.

Important features of the Masters programme in Music Technology at DKIT are the balancing of theory and practice, and technological competence and musical creativity. Conceptually, the progression over the fifteen months can be broadly characterised as a move from Fundamentals to Creativity to Independent Research. At the core of the programme is hands-on training at computer music workstations where students are exposed to computer-based musical composition, sound synthesis and manipulation, programming and development, and music production.

The Department’s Music Technology Centre is a state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research environment dedicated to the musical applications of technology. It comprises fully-equipped and networked music labs, a recording studio, and an interactive systems room.

Career Options

Graduates will have career opportunities in the digital media sector, the recording industry, multimedia development, internet/web music and audio, sound design, audio R&D, music education, radio and television, composition and arranging, music production, music software design, music therapy clinics and music instrument technology.
