This course is part of the digital, media, film and broadcast engineering cluster of BSc degrees. It focuses on the use of audio equipment and systems in radio, TV, and increasingly, internet distribution.
This course will give you a broad-based understanding of broadcast technology, together with an in-depth knowledge of your particular chosen specialist area of audio technology. You will also gain transferable skills in technological and theoretical concepts, research and analysis, problem-solving and collaboration. You will graduate as an engineer who can maintain and support audio equipment and systems for radio, TV, and internet-delivered media.
Graduates can expect to work in a variety of areas in the broadcast and wider media and communications industries from audio systems design, installation, maintenance and support, to studio and location production, post-production and transmission. Because this course is accredited by both Creative Skillset and BKSTS (British Kinematograph, Sound and Television Society), you will be choosing a course that has the approval of the broadcast industry.
The other pathways in this cluster are: BSc (Hons) Broadcast Systems Technology, BSc (Hons) Broadcast Computing, and BSc (Hons) Outside Broadcast Technology.
Your learning will be focused on tutorials, practical exercises and projects guided by teaching staff and external broadcasting professionals.
