Music Technology and Audio Systems

Ever-advancing technologies in the recording industry mean there’s a demand for people with the skills to work on developing the next generation of music and audio technology. This course aims to give you these skills and prepare you for a wide range of careers in production and technical roles within the music industry. This course is all about how recording studio engineers, producers and mix engineers create the sounds and music that we listen to. We also cover live music production and sound design. This course is the most technical course we offer. It is popular music orientated and covers technical skills in software development, audio theory and technology. It’s our goal to prepare you for exciting careers in music production, audio engineering, live sound production, TV and film post-production, audio software development or audio electronics. We focus on popular music, and aim to give you the technical skills to work in this exciting and rewarding industry. We’ll look at music technology and production, as well as sound design, acoustics, live music production and audio engineering. Although we look at audio theory, the focus is very much on the practical side of things, and we’ll study software development and the latest audio technology too. Most tutors on the course have worked in the industry, and many are members of the Audio Engineering Society (AES). You’ll have the chance to draw on their expertise, and gain hands-on experience too, using our professional standard equipment and software. On campus we have nine fully equipped Pro Tools recording studios (including five with Pro Tools HD), six production studios, live sound facilities, electronic design labs and much more. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council, and could help you become registered as an Incorporated Engineer (IE). Our graduates have gone on from the course to work for companies like Adlib Audio working on live sound with major touring artists and Calrec Audio working on new digital mixing desks, while others have gone on to technical positions at companies like Abbey Road Studios.
