This is an exciting time of technological change and challenge. You can be part of this booming industry when you show the potential and passion for music. You are also in sync, if you have a keen interest in music technology. Students pursuing the programme learn essential skills such as digital audio application, music arrangement and studio acoustics. In the process, you acquire cutting-edge skills as well as hands-on experience with an array of professional equipment.
