The MSc in Audio and Music Technology is a one-year full-time taught programme for graduates who wish to enhance their skills to go on to a career or further research in the varied fields of audio processing, room acoustics, interactive music and audio applications, voice analysis and synthesis, audio programming and other music technology related areas. The programme draws on the knowledge and expertise of our Audio Lab.
The MSc is designed for:
• Graduates of programmes in Music Technology or Tonmeister • Graduates of programmes in technology, mathematics, science, engineering or computing who can demonstrate music performance or music production skills • Graduates of a related subject who can demonstrate an understanding of music theory/digital audio, skills in music production or performance and technical experience or an aptitude for the technical aspects of audio
The programme aims to:
• Provide students with a thorough grounding in scientific theory and engineering techniques as applied to digital audio technology • Develop an understanding of audio processing and acoustic analysis as it relates to speech, singing, music and room/environmental acoustics • Provide practical experience of audio software programming in a variety of coding languages and a creative approach to audio analysis and synthesis • Develop communication skills for academic and public engagement purposes, in a variety of writing styles, or for oral presentations
There is a particular emphasis on practical application of theoretical aspects of audio signal processing and acoustic analysis and the programme also helps students to develop other skills such as critical analysis and evaluation, synthesis of theory and practice, creative problem-solving, design and implementation and oral and written communication skills.
2:1 or equivalent in music technology, mathematics, science, engineering or computing where candidates can demonstrate music performance or music production skills. Also consider graduates of other subjects who can demonstrate an understanding of music theory/digital audio, skills in music production or performance and technical experience in audio processing or programming.
