Live Event Technology

Accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Live Event Technology degree will give you the technical skills to transform live performances into events. You’ll study live sound, video, rigging and lighting technology for use in all kinds of venues from theatre, concerts and festivals to TV, themed attractions and corporate events. Throughout the live event technology course, there is a balance of theoretical and practical applications of technology, so you’ll learn how to work with artistic colleagues to find creative solutions to the practical challenges of staging live events. We regularly get involved in all kinds of events, from pop-up castle cinemas to live sports broadcasts. This mix of theory and practice will prepare you for a career in entertainment, broadcasting, touring logistics, technical production companies, and technical sales. There are plenty of opportunities to use what you learn on the live event course, from practical sessions on campus in The Cube, to work placements, attending events and field visits. With a vibrant live music industry in the UK, local TV and film, and a wide range of major sporting and corporate events, you can develop skills to boost your employability in these areas. You can also become qualified to the IET’s 17th Edition Wiring Regulations (additional costs apply).
