Course Introduction

We offer Industrial Experience options on all our full'time taught MSc programmes, which combine academic study with a one'year industrial placement between your taught modules and summer project. Taking the Industrial Experience option as part of your degree gives you a route to develop real'world, practical problem'solving skills gained through your programme of study in a professional context. The programme responds to a growing skills shortage in industry for engineers and computer scientists trained specifically in sound and music processing, as digital media become ever more advanced and ubiquitous. This programme will: Allow you to shape your own programme, by selecting two optional modules per semester to complement the core modules in the programme; give you and understanding of how today's music and audio technology works, but also help you to become a leader in developing the next generation of sound and music computing technology; give you an understanding of the design and software development process for music recording, analysis and synthesis for home, studio and live performance environments. Graduates from our programmes have gone on to work for companies such as Ableton, Last FM and Mix Genius.
