Successful performances often depend on the sound output. Build theoretical and practical skills to create a better sounding experience with our BSc (Hons) Sound Engineering and Production degree. Sound engineers are essential to how we perceive live and recorded sound. As digital listening experiences expand, and more new listeners engage on different devices, sound quality and delivery is paramount. Combining audio engineering theory and studio-based delivery, this practical degree will equip you with the skills to build a career in the audio and media industry. Salford has pioneered acoustics and audio teaching and research for over 60 years. Led by our world-renowned acoustics team, you’ll have access to cutting-edge acoustic testing facilities, advanced laboratories and industry-standard studio facilities, as you critically evaluate new audio developments and apply them creatively. The course explores a variety of practical applications including radio, TV, music recording and live sound. You’ll study audio systems, music technology, live sound connection and studio production. As you develop, you’ll progress to advanced audio production, audio installation and sound design. With your future in focus, you can also choose specialist modules in audio for gaming and virtual reality or audio forensics. When you graduate, you’ll be well-placed to become established in the diverse world of sound, music production, acoustics and audio. Salford Acoustic alumni have forged careers as studio and live producers/engineers, broadcast engineers, gaming audio engineers, product developers, audio researchers, and acoustics consultants.
