This innovative course pairs music technology with electronic engineering, allowing you to specialise in designing electronic systems both for creative practice and scientific research in music. Core modules will give you a solid base in both disciplines, and youâ??ll gain an understanding of circuit analysis, audio signal processing, the sciences of music and the technologies available for sound recording and the development of computer music. Youâ??ll also study digital media engineering and embedded systems, and youâ??ll have the option to compose your own pieces in every year. Project work in each year will help to equip you with the skills for professional life. Taught by both the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and the School of Music, this degree builds on the research of our Interdisciplinary Centre for Scientific Research in Music, giving you access to cutting-edge research alongside the knowledge and skills to prepare you for a variety of exciting careers.
