MEng Digital Audio and Music System Engineering
H658 MEng/DAMSE (4 years)
This programme is aimed at high-flying, technology-oriented students
who have a passion for music and audio, and who wish to understand how
technology is applied to music and audio, and to have a future career
in this field, perhaps designing the next generations of equipment.
the 4th year, the Advanced Electrical and Electronic studies module
enables students to delve deeply into a topic in Digital Music or Audio
of their own choosing, under the guidance of an experienced researcher.
Example topics include: The Phase Vocoder and its musical applications;
State-of-the-Art in Melody Recognition, State-of-the-Art in Instrument
Separation; Digital Power Amplifier Design, etc.
As well as a team project in the second year and a special group project
in the third year, you will undertake a personal project in your final
year and will be tutored and advised in this by a researcher from the
Department of Electronic Engineering’s world leading Centre
for Digital Music . In some cases these projects will also be collaborative
with one of our industrial partners, such as Philips Research, Sun Microsystems
and Yahoo. Some projects will use our state-of-the-art, 3D listening
and performing space (commissioned in summer 2006), and/or with musicians
and creative artists.
rapid advancements in the technology and commerce of Digital Music and
Audio means that employment options are broad, and enhanced by this
degree’s IEE Accreditation (pending). This means that you might find
a job upon graduating, in conventional electronics and telecommunications
companies needing expertise in this field, or in the creative media
