Course content

Audio engineering is a well-developed and far-reaching field encompassing the subjects of loudspeaker and microphone design, analogue and digital electronics, digital signal processing, acoustics, psychoacoustics, computer programing and beyond. The widespread need for audio engineers in these fields provides an on-going demand for well-educated and trained professionals.

This MSc programme has been devised to allow good graduates of electronic engineering, music technology, or similar programs to develop the higher level expertise needed to enter the field of audio engineering, and to allow those already in it to upgrade their skills and understanding.

You will study as an individual, but also at times as part of a group in integrated project work giving you the experience of working within diverse teams.
