About this program
Do you have a deep passion for good audio? If you love sound, recording, producing or electronics, our course is for you. You’ll get to grips with the latest hardware and software, and graduate with the skills employers are looking for. Our course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and JAMES. This course has been validated to include an optional placement year in industry.
Develop a thorough understanding of all aspects of sound engineering and music production whilst studying in the heart of the creative city of Cambridge. With 6 control rooms and 5 live rooms, fully soundproofed and acoustically treated, you’ll learn how to use a variety of digital and analogue mixing consoles, developing your knowledge of professional grade studio equipment. You’ll have the opportunity to study and gain hands-on experience in studio and recording techniques using Logic and Pro Tools; digital manipulation and mixing of sound; creating and editing sound for film and games; acoustics and psychoacoustics; signal processing; and analogue and digital electronics.
You can then choose to channel your creativity by choosing modules involving live sound engineering and advanced studio practice whilst exploring more specialist audio for films and games. Alternatively, choose to build on your maths, physics, and computing skills by choosing our electronic engineering route focusing on circuit design, audio hardware production and digital signal processing (DSP).
We’ll encourage you to practice recording and composing music, both in response to professional briefs and to showcase your talents to employers in your final-year professional portfolio. You’ll learn how to set up as a freelancer and promote yourself using our careers and employability service and Anglia Ruskin Enterprise Academy (AREA).
You'll also have the chance to get involved in live productions with the Audio Music Technology (AMT) student society, working at our Students’ Union, the Mumford Theatre or at one of many live venues in Cambridge. You could even do a work placement between Year 2 and Year 3 – which means great experience for you CV plus excellent industry contacts.
