Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

Our combined degree programme in Music Technology and Computer Science
offers you the opportunity to study in two distinctive disciplines but also to
benefit from the synergies between these two contemporary and cutting-edge
subjects, both of which equip you for careers in our digital, media-rich world. Our modules rank highly for student satisfaction and as a student on this
programme you enjoy cross-disciplinary, research-led teaching. You have
24/7 access to our computer labs and to our purpose-built recording
and project studios, practice rooms and other facilities. Computer
Science modules enable you to learn about the theories which underpin
software, hardware and computing techniques – and how to apply them
in the real world. You use technology to create new opportunities and
solve problems. You could learn about things like artificial intelligence,
computer game development, human-computer interaction and cyber
security. There is a strong emphasis on programming but you do
not need to have Maths A level.

Keele’s Music Technology modules
encourage you to work at the frontiers of the creative application of
technology in composition, music production, sound design, screen
music, audio-visuals and software. You will study different styles and
genres, inventing, capturing, recording, mixing and manipulating audiovisuals
using advanced digital media. You will explore the theory of
sound, the history of audio technology, and the cultural contexts of
music. You can also access modules from the Music programme to
create a programme which reflects your passions.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. As a student on this combined degree programme you develop a wide
range of transferable and subject-specific skills that are highly valued
by employers. Graduates pursue careers as systems analysts, software
engineers and consultants, working for such companies as Apple, BAE
systems, Barclays, Capgemini, EA Games, Experian and Microsoft. You
might develop your academic experience to follow a career in the music,
sound, screen, software and media production industries. Graduates
in Music Technology have gone on to work in games computing,
broadcasting, recording, production, sound design, soundtrack
creation, song writing and performance. You may also choose to
pursue postgraduate study at masters or doctoral level.
