In this degree students focus on the computing aspects of music and audio; this is for those who have no formal training in music but nonetheless have a serious interest in the technology behind the music; studies concentrate on current music and audio technologies in computing and signal processing and their application to creativity and the arts. The study of music technology can be approached from many directions. Facilities for music systems and technology students at UWE are excellent. In our recording studio we have both analogue and digital consoles of a full professional standard. Multi track recording, mixes, sequencing and recording are all done in the studio, where you are also able to produce your own CDs. There is an excellent range of microphones including B&K, Electrovoice, Shure and Beyer. Due to the popularity of music technology courses at UWE, we have recently built additional new facilities. These include two new music control rooms, linked to the music studio, and eight isolated booths where student groups can work on sound recording and mixing projects. This course is fully accredited by JAMES, the education arm of the APRS and MPG. The Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS) and the Music Producers Guild (MPG) have combined their educational efforts to create JAMES, set up to support Education and Training.
