Students on the MSc in Acoustics and Music Technology (AMT MSc) program undertake compulsory project work as part of their degree. The main project comes in the summer period, and is known as the ‘Final Project‘. This is assessed by combined presentation/dissertation.
Students also have the opportunity to choose to do an additional, shorter project, known as a ‘Special Project’, during either of the main University semesters. This project sometimes leads towards the topic of the Final Project, but this is not required by any means.
We present here a number of recent project titles, for both Final Projects and Special Projects, as undertaken by AMT MSc students.
