Course Summary

The MSc in Sound and Music Computing responds to a growing skills shortage in industry for engineers and computer scientists trained specifically in sound and music processing, as digital media become ever more advanced and ubiquitous. You will develop the knowledge and skills required for careers in the technical aspects of audio production, sound engineering, broadcasting, intelligent signal processing, computational music analysis, music information retrieval and other areas of sound and music computing. You will acquire an in-depth understanding of data analysis and signal processing techniques related to human speech and hearing, psychoacoustics and masking, and instrument and room acoustics.

The MSc is intended for graduates in a related discipline, who wish to hone and enhance their skills, and for industrialists with experience of sound and music computing, seeking formal qualifications. The taught modules are fully supported with computing and laboratory work. You will graduate with an understanding of how today's audio and music technology works, possessing the potential to become a pioneer in developing future generations of leading edge music technologies.

This programme will: allow you to shape your own programme, by selecting two optional modules per semester to complement the core modules in Sound and Music Computing; give you and understanding of how today’s music and audio technology works, but also help you to become a leader in developing the next generation of sound and music computing technology; give you an understanding of the design and software development process for music recording, analysis and synthesis for home, studio and live performance environments; graduates from our programmes have gone on to work for companies such as Ableton, Last FM and Mix Genius. Queen Mary's Computer Science postgraduates go on to work in a wide variety of careers, mostly within IT and information services.

The industrial placement takes place from the September following the taught part of the MSc and is for a maximum of 12 months. It is a student's responsibility to secure their own placement, but the EECS Placement Team will provide support. The Placement Team source and promote suitable opportunities, assist with applications, and with interview preparation.
