At present, this course is one of very few in the UK to offer this ‘cross-collaboration’ discipline between conventional performance and coding technologies. Moreover, this course directly connects with and enables students to interact with the emerging musical interface industries.
These industries look to enable many end users to interact with music (within production and performance settings) regardless of skill and disability. As a result, student will get the opportunity to pitch their new invented products to experts in these industries within the Final Major Project Showcase module.
The Foundation Degree in Music Performance Technologies at University of Wolverhampton encourages an independence of thought and an entrepreneurial mindset through deep integration of cutting-edge technical skills and a focus on the developing music performance landscape. A range of assessment methods are used at both levels 4 and 5.
Potential Career Paths
Students will acquire skills in music production, sound design, instrument design, performance approaches, software engineering, software design and product design and structure. As a result, multiple industry sectors include sound creation and production, software creation and design, live sound and performance will be open to students on completion of the course.
