The Masters programme in Digital Art and Technology (m-DAT) at the University of Plymouth, UK, beginning late September 2006.

The programme is unique in offering arts-science-research awards that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the programme and the research context of the Institute of Digital Art and Technology (i-DAT), in the Faculty of Technology.

m-DAT is designed to enable you to develop your practical and conceptual skills, to enhance your employability in the creative industries or to prepare you for study at MPhil/PhD level.

The programme offers 1 year full-time or 2+ years part-time study.

It follows a low residency model combined with online contact, and therefore in its part-time mode is ideal for those working elsewhere. Those studying full-time benefit from the facilities of the Faculty of Technology, and work alongside other post-graduate researchers at i-DAT and Roy Ascott’s Planetary Collegium PhD programme.

The programme runs pathways that focus on software art, computer music, spatial design and online curating.

Current staff include: Geoff Cox, Joasia Krysa, Eduardo Miranda, Mike Phillips, Mike Punt, Chris Speed, Adrian Ward, plus guest speakers.
