Course summary

If you're returning to education, or didn't study Maths at A level, our foundation year will give you the maths and physics knowledge you need to progress on to our BEng Music Technology Systems course.

You'll spend your first-year learning maths and physics content to A level standard, and you'll begin to develop your practical skills in the electronics lab.

If you successfully complete the foundation year, you'll automatically continue onto the first year of our degree in Music Technology Systems. You'll explore topics including synthesiser technology, MIDI, sampling and audio signal processing, and learn how this technology is applied in recording studios and field recording projects. You'll use your expertise to create innovative and optimised designs, addressing real-world problems.

With individual and group projects at every stage of the degree to develop practical, organisational, management and business skills, you'll graduate with the abilities and approaches you will need to operate with confidence – as a researcher, expert designer or technical manager - in this exciting field.

You can instead choose to transfer onto any of our other BEng courses within the department. In addition, if you achieve a high score in the Foundation Year exams you will have the opportunity to transfer onto one of our MEng courses.

Accreditation

This course is fully accredited by the IET and counts towards the training requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Our courses have been continually accredited for 25 years.

Teaching and assessment

You’ll study and learn with academics who are active researchers, experts in their field and have a passion for their subjects. Our approach to teaching will provide you with the knowledge, opportunities, and support you need to grow and succeed in a global workplace.
