Course Information

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.
