The course focuses on various technologies housed in MUTKU, such as optical motion capture, electroencephalography (EEG), virtual reality (VR), and various technologies used in therapeutic and well-being settings. Students decide which technology to focus on at the start of the course. They will then carry out a project that provides hands-on skill development in data collection and analysis. The nature of the project can be based on the student’s own interest, suggested by the teacher, or be part of an ongoing research project within the department.

- acquired a deep understanding and expertise in one or more technologies that can be applied to music-related empirical research

- completed a small methods-based experiment that fits within the purview of MUTKU’s department research orientation as it pertains to music-related empirical research

- acquired experience in writing a technical report that describes in technical language an experimental procedure and outcome
