Course summary

This challenging multidisciplinary programme will help you develop the necessary scientific skills and creative mindset to design the music tools, spaces and software 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 who are highly numerate, possess deep technical knowledge, have a curious and creative mindset, and 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, and which are also useful in many other numerate disciplines. 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. “I enjoyed the international dynamic at the University, and the exciting approaches to sound. I felt in my element experimenting with all the different things sound and music can be.” - Kirsty Keatch, BMus (Hons) Music Technology graduate
