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

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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
