This challenging multidisciplinary programme will help you develop the necessary scientific skills and creative mindset to design the music tools of tomorrow. You will explore how modern technologies are driving a revolution in the way that sound is created, manipulated, and transmitted.
The programme is designed for students with a strong background in maths and physics, who are fascinated by the interplay of science, technology, and music.
The world of modern acoustics and music technology demands graduates with both deep technical knowledge and creativity, who are able to work across multiple disciplines. This programme emphasises excellence in subjects that underpin the field, such as physics, computer programming, and audio signal processing.
These are combined with studies in sound recording, architectural acoustics, creative music technology, sound design, and a range of further options in music and beyond, challenging you to invent the future of acoustics and music technology.
