Course content

This M.Sc. course provides a foundation in the technologies
and media relevant to the digital media sector. The course
runs full-time over a twelve-month period. Formal teaching
is divided into two twelve-week semesters.
Each student selects and commences a research project, which
must be submitted in the form of a dissertation of 12,000 words
by mid March. Students will also complete a final project, which
can be a collaborative development with a number of students
from the class . There is significant emphasis on theory rather
than on media or software applications. A special laboratory is
provided for the class where students can become familiar with
software applications.
The courses offered include: Introduction to Programming;
XML/HTML; Audio Technologies; Sensors; Interactive
Authoring; Graphic Design; Image Processing; Cultural
and Critical Studies; Research Methodologies; Client/
Server Technologies and Networking; Interactive Narrative;
Mobile Computing; Image Processing and 3-D Modelling;
Game Development and Production; Legal Issues in Digital
Publishing.; Digital Media Enterprises
This course is especially suited to graduates with a primary
degree in either Humanities or in Computer Science as both
disciplines are important to the digital media sector. Applications
will be accepted from good honours graduates in any discipline
or from mature students with relevant industry experience.
This course has been co-funded under the National
Development Plan (Graduate Skills Conversion Programme)
for EU fee paying students.
