Sound Technology

This practical course trains you in live sound which can lead to an exciting career in a variety of settings including theatre, music festivals and radio. It is designed for students who are not necessarily musicians or performers and prefer the challenges of using technology to enable performance.

This course is based on exploring current and emerging technologies relating to audio production, and how these can be used to create music and sound for many applications.

To achieve this we have a range of high quality studios and performance spaces on campus that act as catalysts for the creative application of technology.

As well as the studio spaces, the course makes full use of the facilities in the Centre for the Creative Industries.

Our students pursue career paths within the core specialism of Music Technology or associated fields. These have included touring sound, event management, audio visual technicians, stage technicians or on to further study at postgraduate level.

Our Sound Technology course is professionally oriented to give students the opportunity to expand their career prospects and gain employment in an exciting and dynamic industry.
