Music and Media Technologies (M.Phil.)
In recognition of a shared interest in Information Technology and a growing awareness of its relevance for music, Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Music initiated a Master programme in Music and Media Technologies in Trinity in 1996.
A particular feature of this programme is a balanced approach to musical and technological topics. Musically, a strong emphasis is placed on the development of adaptable compositional skills, while technological topics are addressed from both a hands-on workstation/studio exposure and a fundamental mathematical and scientific basis, which focuses on musically relevant issues.
The first two semesters form a self-contained Postgraduate Diploma course which provides the necessary musical and technological skills to allow creative individuals to engage in computer-assisted composition and production, apply software tools for the music and New Media industries and/or enter the arena of music-on-screen; production for New Media products.
The third (summer) semester of study, leading to the M.Phil. degree, is an option open to those achieving a sufficient standard in their first & second semester module assignments and exams. Students are required to complete a thesis which can be of a musical or technological nature.
The programme covers a wide range of subjects within the general field of music technology, and provide students with a fully professional qualification. The programme can be taken full-time over a 12 month period or part-time over a 24 month period.

Job Opportunity Potential
If you are an international student studying at Trinity, you might be considering internship and graduate work in Ireland, in your home country, or elsewhere. This section provides information for Non EU students on working in Ireland during and after your studies. For information and resources to support an international job search, see our Devex resource which includes international job search advice and information.
Employers value candidates who have more to offer than a good degree with high grades. They look for students who are well rounded and who have experience outside the classroom. Search for and take advantage of opportunities to gain experience, develop your skill set, and gain a clearer picture of what you like and don't like in terms of career options.
For example, you can get involved in some of the many student clubs and societies in college, volunteer or get a part time job. Remember that voluntary work is as valuable as paid work on your CV or resume - it's a great way to demonstrate your skills to future employers. Have a look at the TCD Civic Engagement website and check out volunteering opportunities in Ireland and abroad.
