Master's Program in Digital Media: Last Call for Applications

08.05.2007
Will we wear the next Internet browser as a shirt? Can we use future computers to make music in a virtuous fashion, like playing on a Stradivari, but without those years of painful practicing? Questions like these are covered in the Master's Program in Digital Media. It is offered jointly by four universities located in Bremen, Germany, to provide a unique blend of different expertise, teaching styles, and research foci in media informatics, media design, and media theory.

The courses are held in English. Nonetheless, the study program adheres to Germany's gratuitous practices concerning tuition fees. Thus, being accepted into this program is like winning a scholarship. This year's first application deadline is 31 May 2007.

The core of the four-semester study program is formed by a project in which students tackle research and development on a given problem of digital media. They work autonomously under supervision of a professor. Each of the four universities offers a project on a different subfield of digital media: Hochschule Bremen (Bremen University of Applied Sciences), Hochschule Bremerhaven (Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences) and Universität Bremen (University of Bremen) concentrate on informatics; these institutions issue the M.Sc. degree. The Hochschule für Künste Bremen (University of the Arts Bremen) addresses media design and awards the M.A. degree.

The study program features a highly international body of students. Thus, it is not only a melting pot for engineers, designers, artists, and media researchers, but also allows the students finding their place in the globalized world of digital media.

Students have to possess a prior degree comparable to a German bachelor's degree (three years of full-time study) in digital media or a related program such as computer science or graphics design. Depending on their interests and previous activities, also graduates of study programs in fields such as the natural sciences, media theory, and sociology may apply. The prior degree does not need to be already completed at the time of application.

Bremen is located in north-western Germany, close to the Northern Sea. Still a prominent harboring place for international goods, Bremen has become a major center for the digital media industry, with dozens of small, medium, and large companies seeking research and offering jobs. Bremen's ancient market place has been declared world-cultural heritage; the town is widely known for its appearance in the tale "Bremen town musicians" of the Brothers Grimm.

Im Focus: Safe glide at total engine failure with ELA-inside

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
