Graduates are equipped with the knowledge to be employed within all facets of the industry, such as Recording Engineers, Mix Engineers, Mastering Engineers, Music Producers, Studio Engineers, Live Sound Engineers, Monitor Engineers and Acousticians.

Our team of professional and experienced lecturers train students in the art and, science of sound technology and production across a wide range of applications from recording to sound production for film and television.
Students are put through their paces with practical skills throughout their studies while working with industry-standard equipment.

In the first year of study students are introduced to the fundamentals of audio theory and what being a sound engineer is all about. In the second year, students learn advanced recording techniques and an in-depth analysis of instruments.

Audio-visual post-production is taken to another level, and radio production is dealt with in detail by utilising our campus radio station facilities.

In the third year, students will specialise and start working closely with real-world situations and studying acoustic principles, studio design and music business principles.

Engaging with experts and award-winning producers from different industries is a constant focus. This exposes students to the unlimited potential of avenues they can pursue beyond degree completion.
