EIT ICT Labs Master School

Digital Media Technology (DMT)

The EIT ICT Labs Master School is an exclusive joint initiative by leading technical universities and business schools in Europe with additional mentoring and partnering from excellent European research organisations and leading business partners. 

The EIT ICT Labs Master School track on DMT is a two-year programme (120 ECTS) at advanced level leading to a dual/double Master’s degree including a mandatory and fully standardized Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) minor (30 ECTS).  Graduates will receive two degrees, one from each institution where she/he has been studying and a certificate from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. Students will be offered an internship with a partner from industry or with a research centre affiliated with the EIT ICT Labs to work on a thesis project. Students will also participate in a common EIT ICT Labs Master School summer program.  

The technical major in Digital Media Technology focuses on enabling technologies for digital media systems, including technologies for generating interactive media, processing and coding of media, and for wired and wireless transfer and storage of media content. Graduates with a DMT major will be specialists and creators that will innovate future digital media technology. 

The first year will be similar at all three DMT entry point universities Aalto, KTH and TU Delft with four basic courses on signal processing, computer graphics, Web services and communication networks. Technical focus will be provided in the second year. The DMT major will offer five specializations at five different exit point universities:  

  • Hypermedia at Aalto (Finland) – linked data and Web-based services  
  • Media Processing and Communications at KTH (Sweden) – processing and coding of audio, images, video and immersive visual data for telecommunication applications  
  • Medical Imaging at TU Delft (Netherlands) – medical imaging, 3D models and techniques for medical diagnosis, planning and operative support  
  • Media Communications Services at BME (Hungary) – communications and delivery networks, systems, technologies and platforms for media services  
  • Virtual Environments at UCL (UK) – visual computing and virtual reality systems  


Hypermedia - Aalto University
The hypermedia specialization focuses on linked data and Web-based services. The students will acquire skills to develop advanced Web-based services both on user interface and data level. The topics covered include information retrieval techniques, Web service programming, declarative Web services, semantic Web and Web service techniques. The specialization area is linked both to Smart Spaces and Future Media and Content Delivery thematic areas. In Smart Spaces, linked data can be used to integrate information coming from different sensors and devices, while Web technologies allow the adaption of the service user interfaces to different devices. Web technologies are commonly used in online media services, while linked data allows the integration of different services together.

Admission requirement

A B.Sc. in electrical engineering or computer science is required. Previous education must include basic mathematics courses on linear algebra, Fourier methods and probability theory. The average grade must be at least 75% of the scale maximum.
