Do you have a passion for live music? Are you hoping to work behind the scenes in the entertainment industry? This practical and skills based live audio technology degree will help you develop a high level of working knowledge, fully equipped to install, operate and customise modern audio systems and pursue a range of careers in the music and live events industry. Students studying live sound technology will have the chance to build these specialist skills by using our industry standard media facilities.
