MSc Audio Engineering

Course Description

About this course

Audio engineering is a well-developed and far-reaching field encompassing the subjects of loudspeaker and microphone design, analogue and digital electronics, digital signal processing, acoustics, psychoacoustics, computer programming and more. The widespread need for audio engineers in these fields provides an ongoing demand for well-educated and trained professionals. This MSc programme has been devised to allow good graduates of electronic engineering, music technology, or similar courses to develop the higher level expertise needed to enter the field of audio engineering, and to allow those already in it to upgrade their skills and understanding.

You'll be taught by internationally-recognised experts in the field of audio engineering, and will yourself be part of ground-breaking research in the field. We maintain close links with local, national and international industry, as well as professional bodies, ensuring
that the teaching on this course remains contemporary and relevant while bringing in a number of these key contacts to deliver guest lectures, seminars and workshops. This course is designed with a focus on innovation and critical thinking in order to develop graduates capable of driving the next generation of audio technology and remaining on the leading edge of audio engineering throughout their careers.

You’ll develop the skills and knowledge valued most by employers in the field of audio engineering. To do this we have developed the course in consultation with leading organisations in the field and have identified the areas of audio electronics, live sound reinforcement, surround sound systems and software engineering as central to the needs of the industry.

You'll develop your skills in critical thinking and innovative thinking, allowing you to remain at the leading edge of audio engineering and to drive future innovation in audio when you join the industry after graduation.

You'll learn and research in our state-of-the-art facilities including 3D multi-channel sound rooms, live event production spaces and fully equipped analogue and digital electronics laboratories.
