Download the application form here. This Masters programme runs part-time over two years, from September 2017 to June 2019 with an exit point after one year for those wishing to qualify for a Post Graduate Diploma. For an update on the recent seminar in RUA RED Arts Centre and other news, see the programme website: www.mmda.ie. MMDA prioritises building knowledge and understanding through creative practice using a range of different media and electronic tools. The emphasis is on making things which express, explore, interrogate and create new insights. Inspired by the Maker movement and placed firmly in a STEAM space, through a blend of the science and tools of electronics with those of media arts, students are encouraged to experiment at the intersections of art, design and technology in a practical, hands-on environment. Delivered jointly by the Department of Humanities and the Department of Electronic Engineering, in partnership with RUA RED South Dublin Arts Centre in Tallaght, graduates of this programme will have advanced knowledge and competencies in areas such as physical computing, digital media, ambient intelligence as well as a deep understanding of how these technologies interconnect with each other and with our capacities for expression and communication. Come along to the open evening on 4th September for more information from the programme leaders, or contact them through the website.
