If you have a strong background in maths and physics, and you’re fascinated by the interplay of science, technology and music, our BSc Acoustics and Music Technology degree is for you!
This exciting programme brings together the core scientific and creative subjects that underpin the field of Acoustics and Music Technology. Physics, computer programming, and audio signal processing are taken alongside studies in the creative use of sound, hosted within a dynamic, multi-disciplinary music department. The programme is unique in combining study in both the Sciences and the Arts within an integrated single Honours degree programme that will equip you to invent the future of acoustics, audio, and music technology.
Acoustics and Music Technology are driving a revolution in the way that sound is created, manipulated, transmitted, and replayed. They enable an expanding range of creative applications, from music production to the design of concert halls, from the emerging field of immersive virtual reality to new modalities of musical expression. Continued growth in computer power, in particular, is allowing for remarkable innovation, from next generation methods for sound synthesis, to a transformation in the way we design and experience the built environment, to the emergence of wholly new forms of media.
Such a fast-moving field demands graduates with a high level of numeracy, deep technical knowledge, a curious and creative mind-set, and the ability to work across multiple disciplines. This degree will provide you with these skills to ensure you’re well equipped to work in this field when you graduate.
