This Music, Multimedia and Electronics course from University of Leeds combines music technology with electronic engineering and provides you with the opportunity to specialise in designing electronic systems for creative practice whilst pursuing musicological and scientific research in music.


Delivered in collaboration with the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, the course focuses on engineering, creative applications and contextual study at the intersection of music and technology.

Core modules provide a solid base in both disciplines; you’ll gain an understanding of circuit analysis, audio signal processing, sound and music technologies, and engineering and musicological research skills. You’ll study digital media engineering and embedded systems while creating your own electronic music. Project work will equip you with skills for a variety of exciting careers.
