This course builds on work commenced in MTEC6709 and culminates in the full realisation of the Specialised Technology Project. The project is an advanced study into a specific area(s) of Music Technology and is undertaken in consultation with a supervisor. Using the study program developed in MTEC6709, students will progress through the various stages of development and undertake reflective assessment. The final project must be presented at a suitable (Masters) standard and be accompanied by relevant documentation.
