Subject

Audio technology

As creative industries report continual growth year on year, the need for employees with skills and knowledge in audio related
disciplines has also increased - particularly in industries such as live sound, gaming, broadcast and film. As such, there has
arguably never been a better time to enroll on our industry accredited Audio and Music Technology Bachelor of Science degree.
Under the guidance and expertise of experienced academic staff and industry-active practitioners, you will develop a broad,
balanced skill set, acquiring proficiencies in the design, integration, and operation of the technologies and techniques that will
underpin your future career. You will have access to our industry standard recording studios and audio and video production
facilities, giving you use of a wide range of digital and analogue audio equipment all supported by a dedicated course-based
technical support team.
Your studies with us will be a carefully balanced blend of theory and practice. You will gain hands-on experience in field and
studio recording; explore the manipulation, editing and mixing of sound using analogue and digital systems and workflows;
investigate acoustics and psychoacoustics; as well as signal processing, programming, and electronics.
You decide the path your educational journey takes through your participation in our module choice process. You can opt for
modules that reflect your personal aspirations, interests, and passions; or to learn new skills, methodologies and perspectives.
You may choose to focus on multitrack audio production, developing sound for film and games, hardware design, digital signals
processing or something else entirely - it is your education.
We make your employability as a graduate a core focus throughout your studies. Your coursework assignments are designed to
prepare you for industry. As you progress through the course you will collate a professional portfolio of work with which you can
showcase your talents to prospective clients and employers. You will benefit from our expertise and experience as an
entrepreneurial University, receiving advice, guidance and support from our careers and employability service and the Anglia
Ruskin Enterprise Academy. We also convene an employer’s advisory group, through which we engage with local industry and
promote work experience and job opportunities as well as giving you a chance to ask questions of potential future employers.
You will also have the opportunity to join our award winning Audio Music Technology Society, through which you will gain
invaluable work experience in and around the numerous Cambridge venues, including our very own Student Union Academy and
Mumford Theatre. There is an optional work placement between years two and three, plus internships with our industry partners
and practitioners. All of which equates to great experience to include on your CV plus a fantastic opportunity to make those
