Funded Masters/PhD: media arts technology Queen Mary, London

Hi - a new call has gone out for our Media Arts and Technology program. We’re looking for people interested in researching technology that’s used in the digital arts. I teach Max/MSP, Processing and openFrameworks for the course - it also features Logic and Final Cut, then people go on to define their research area. Any questions feel free to contact me (andrewrobertson77 at googlemail.com) or Richard below who runs the program. I think it would really suit people into programming who might want to combine that with a research interest.

Cheers,
Andrew
