Program Description

Master in Digital Media Technology (DMT)

EIT Digital Master School

The programme in Digital Media Technology focuses on enabling technologies for digital media systems, including technologies for analysing media, generating interactive media, processing and coding, optimising wired and wireless transfer, and distributing digital 3D contents.

Graduates of the DMT programme will be both specialists and innovators that are able to shape future digital media technology. The first year will be similar at both DMT entry point universities KTH and TU Delft with four basic courses on signal processing, computer graphics, web services, and communication networks. The second year will accommodate the technical specialisation.

The programme will offer six specialisations: (1) Hypermedia, (2) Media Processing and Communications, (3) Medical Imaging, (4) Media Communications Services, (5) Virtual Environments, (6) Semantic Media.

Programme

The first year is similar at the two entry points with four basic courses on signal processing, computer graphics, programming web services and internet communication. In addition, some elective courses may be chosen to prepare for a specialisation.

An important part of the programme are the Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) courses. The I&E basics course provides an introduction to business and management. The Business Development Lab extends media systems engineering projects by a market survey, a business model generation process, and a venture development exercise. We emphasize user driven innovation and holistic analysis of service, technology, organisation and financial perspectives, as new media technologies are disruptive for existing business models and almost always have a significant impact on the culture and social relations. Society-relevant themes will also be at the core of the summer schools, which will bring students from the different entry points together.

Students participating in the DMT track are offered an internship with an industry partner or research centre of the EIT Digital to work on their thesis project. Directly linked to the master thesis is the I&E minor thesis that specifies the requirements, strategy and business plan for the selected thesis project.

The I&E thesis allows students to study issues such as user driven digital media innovation and evaluation of user experience social media digital media ecosystem analysis, business models for content providers in the context of next generation networks, role of video communication and collaboration tools in enterprises, business aspects of e-health and telemedicine services.

The first year is offered by the following universities:

  • KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
  • University of Technology Delft, the Netherlands

Specialisations

Specialisations are provided in the second year.

The DMT programme offers 6 specialisations, each at a different location. To meet the requirements for geographic mobility, the chosen exit point needs to differ from the chosen entry point.

  • Hypermedia at Aalto
  • Media Processing and Communications at KTH
  • Medical Imaging at TU Delft
  • Media Communications Services at BME Budapest
  • Virtual Environments at UCL
  • Semantic Media at UNITN

Specific Admission Requirements

A B.Sc. in electrical engineering or computer science is required. Previous education must have included basic mathematics courses within linear algebra, Fourier methods and probability theory.

This school offers programs in:
