The course covers: audio, video, broadcasting, data networks, computing, infrastructure and systems, and outside broadcasting.

Students acquire these skills via project-based learning across a variety of disciplines that include: sound, acoustics, cameras, outside broadcasting, events, studio production, satellites, networking, streaming, and new emerging technologies.
Students should ideally have a background in art, creative media, or design.
