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.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
