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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
