Summary

Taking the science of musical sound as your focus, you’ll work in a cross-disciplinary environment, using theoretical and experimental work to explore the musical, technical and multimedia applications of acoustics and audio technology.

The programme aims to:
- provide a broadly based, scientifically-oriented foundation in the area of acoustics, audio, and music technology

- develop skills in research, computation, design and analytical problem-solving

- create a multidisciplinary learning environment that will prepare the student for careers in which a strong understanding of music/audio technology is required

The emphasis of this programme is on science and technology in the context of musical and multimedia applications.

The MSc is taught by a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical work. Courses are assessed through a combination of report submissions and written examinations. In the final three months, you will carry out an individual project, which is assessed by submission of a dissertation.
