Take your interest in audio to the next level and gain the technical, scientific and engineering expertise that will enable you to produce high-quality audio solutions.

How do you design a public address system to deliver an important speech to thousands of listeners, or predict the acoustic impact of new high-speed rail lines on nearby homes and engineer solutions to reduce this impact? With its unique blend of engineering, acoustics, programming and electronics, this course will give you the theoretical grounding and skills to answer these questions and many more like them.

Designed by a teaching team who continue to work in the audio industry - many of whom are members of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and Audio Engineering Society (AES) - this is a course dedicated to analysing how audio systems work. You will develop your flair for science, technology, engineering and problem solving, learning how to apply this knowledge to recording live sound, digital broadcasts, studio and location sound and audio-visual applications.

Working with others is at the forefront of a career in the audio industries and we will improve your communications skills so you gain the confidence to progress in this environment. You will get involved in real-world projects that reflect the acoustic issues and technical requirements you will face in industry.

Audio engineering covers an array of environments - live music events, loudspeaker design, studio sound, theatre halls and sound reproduction systems, to name just a few. You will graduate with the ability to understand the physical nature and behaviour of sound and use this to benefit audio production and performance.
