Course summary

Overview

On our MSc in Digital Audio Engineering, you will explore the varied uses of technology in the delivery and creation of digital audio systems. With access to many useful resources, including both hardware and software, you will be able to develop real-world technical expertise to design, develop and operate a range of innovative solutions.

Digital audio is part of all aspects of modern life. It is used in music and sound production, media and gaming, 3D spatial audio, mobile devices, streaming, online media and the internet of things (IoT), plus many others. There is a growing demand for people who have the necessary technical and creative abilities to enable and progress how digital audio is embedded in these areas.

As such, this course is designed for graduates from a range of engineering, music technology and computer science backgrounds.

Course detail

The focus of the course is on the analysis and design of systems and tools within the context of business needs.

A mix of teaching methods are used to give you a balance of theory and the practical application of skills, ranging from lectures, tutorials and workshops to the examination of case studies and practical programming projects.

Field trips, a programme of invited industry professionals and collaborative projects with other postgraduate students within the school and elsewhere will give you further insight into the real-world applications of your work.

On graduating, you should have an informed and critical understanding of the use of technology within industry.

Some of the coursework and project work you may engage with include:

  • audio pattern recognition, such as speech analysis
  • noise-cancellation algorithms
  • audio software plug-ins such as EQ, dynamics, spectral morphing and delay/reverb
  • virtual synthesiser and sample instruments etc.

Extended Masters option

If you have an undergraduate degree, but do not quite meet the entry criteria for this course, you may qualify for our Extended Masters. You will take two extra modules to prepare you for the course and you must study full time. We also provide English-language support if you need it. Once you complete these two modules, you can progress directly onto the regular Masters course.

Study & career progression

There are many industry and research sectors where there are opportunities for employment and career progression. With a qualification in digital audio engineering, you could work in:

  • archiving, restoration and digital libraries
  • audio for games
  • audio for telecommunications
  • audio forensics
  • audio recording and mastering systems
  • automotive audio
  • coding of audio signals.
