Course summary

Computer Science and Music Production will provide you with the theoretical tools to solve real-world problems as well as the practical skills to operate equipment for producing sound and digital audio. You will combine your creative expertise with your ability to develop software systems, graduating with an array of transferable skills across industries. Why choose this course?

  • Access a wide range of equipment including supercomputer facilities, a VR lab and a Maker Space
  • Graduate with a substantial music and audio portfolio using industry standard software and hardware
  • On demand access to comprehensive music studio facilities with sound design and computer labs
  • Gain first-hand experience in industry with our Placement Year option
  • Discover diverse cultures through an International Year at a partner university across the globe
Computer Science at Keele is informed by research and close interaction with our Industry Advisory Board, exploring the key themes that underpin this contemporary subject, whilst Music Production examines the cultural contexts in which sound is produced for and how it is consumed in various media forms. Computer science begins with exploring the fundamental concepts and techniques for object-oriented programming which will become more advanced throughout your degree programme. This includes areas such as games programming, mobile app and web development, artificial intelligence (AI) and cyber security, with the consideration of cutting edge research in AI and machine learning. You will also have the opportunity to further specialise in your studies and apply the techniques you have learnt, through a final year project in the School of Computing and Mathematics. In addition to developing your knowledge in computer science, you will acquire technical skills and academic expertise in music production through working with audio software, hardware, and digital audio in studio and production set ups.
