Course summary

This degree in audio software engineering will enable you to find work in a range of industry sectors where audio software, coding and development are part of the skillset employers are looking for. Audio software engineering is a field at the intersection of many disciplines that have boomed over the past few decades. During the course, you will look at how advances in software to create, manipulate and represent audio in creative ways, have radically changed our approach to and relationship with audio. This multidisciplinary degree contains a number of interlocking subject areas that progress through the course allowing you to develop and reinforce your knowledge and skills both collectively and separately. By the end of the course, you will have a huge array of marketable skills under your belt as an audio software engineer and will be able to apply them for a range of purposes in the industry. We live in a fast-paced world where ultra-fast broadband, cloud storage and computing, are widely available. We are consuming media, gaming and using smart devices, all of which require audio. Through the course study material, you will look at how audio is being produced for music, video, games, broadcast, performance, and many additional areas. Consumers and producers are demanding more sophisticated and broad-ranging applications that include audio as a component. Become part of the response to these needs, through developing specialised skills in:

  • coding and software development
  • digital signal processing
  • audio engineering and production
  • artificial intelligence
The course will give you the theoretical underpinning and practical skills so you can work and adapt to changes in technology and the industry.
