Audio Engineering

The University of Huddersfield

UCAS Course code N475


If you have a real interest in music and audio technologies, this course could be the first step for your career. You’ll learn about music technology and production in the context of the music and broadcast environment and the use of technology and software for sound production. It’s all about equipping the next generation of audio engineers with the technical abilities to not only use the equipment, but to also play a role in its development.

This course covers recording studios and live sound engineering and incorporates technical modules which cover audio broadcast, consumer and professional audio systems and audio signal measurement, test and analysis. Principles of analogue and digital audio, audio processing, loudspeakers, microphones, acoustics and psychoacoustics are also studied. Programming is taught in several forms to provide the necessary technical underpinning of the course and to give an enhanced skills base for employment.

Most tutors on the course have worked in the industry, and many are members of the Audio Engineering Society (AES). You’ll have the chance to draw on their expertise, and gain hands-on experience too, using our professional standard equipment and software. On campus we have five fully equipped recording studios (including SSL and Audient mixing desks), six production studios, live sound facilities, electronic design labs and much more.
