This course is part of the digital, media, film and broadcast engineering cluster of BSc degrees. It focuses on the use, installation and development of information communication technology (hardware and software) in TV broadcasting and emerging internet-based systems.
This course will give you a broad-based understanding of broadcast technologies, including those that are beginning to use the internet. You will graduate with an in-depth knowledge of broadcast computing, and also have a breadth of transferable skills in technological and theoretical concepts, research and analysis, problem-solving and collaboration. You will be a broadcast engineer who understands how ICT fits into all levels of the broadcast industry from production equipment and systems through to transmission technology.
Graduates can expect to work in a variety of areas in the broadcast and emerging ‘new media’ industries from ICT systems design, installation, maintenance and support, to server system support in studio and location production, postproduction 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. Ravensbourne’s engineering students are highly sought after and many are working part-time in industry before they graduate. Almost 100% of our graduates are employed within six months.
Your learning will be focused on tutorials, practical exercises and projects guided by teaching staff and external broadcasting professionals.
