About the Sound Engineering and Music Production (Hons) course at University of Huddersfield

The course has a clear focus on music production and combines a broad mix of modules ranging from the technical to the creative, it covers a wide range of topics including:

  • Advanced music production
  • Mixing techniques
  • Game audio
  • Sound for film and media
  • Live music

  • Mastering techniques

During your time on the course, we will help you explore the music industry and prepare you for exciting and rewarding careers in areas such as studio engineering, live sound production, audio and sound design for games, audio recording and post-production for film and television as well as music mastering.

You will have access to our industry-standard studios, helping you to work with equipment that you will encounter in the real world of work. You will gain hands-on experience of using professional software and equipment including five fully equipped Pro Tools recording studios, SSL and large format Audient mixing consoles, industry standard outboard compressors and equalizers, a range of plugins from UAD and Waves, six production studios, live sound facilities and more.

During your studies, you will be supported by tutors, many of whom are experienced industry professionals. You can book the studios seven days a week for use outside teaching time to develop your sound engineering skills and production style even further.

Our course also has an active research basis which is an essential element of higher education. Many of the academic staff are members of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and are researching into areas such as perceptual audio, automated mixing techniques, music production, new interfaces for music and other related disciplines.

We supplement our teaching with guest lectures and master classes from professional music producers, equipment designers and media producers, to make sure you are learning from a wide range of people, in recent years we have had guest lectures from producer Tony Platt (AC/CD, Bob Marley, Iron Maiden, Paul McCartney) and live sound engineer Jon Burton (The Prodigy, Pet Shop Boys, Radiohead) among many others.

Graduates from our music production courses have gone on to work in studios such as Angel Studios, The Chairworks, engineered the front of house live mix for rock bands such as Deaf Havana and been nominated for Grammy awards for their work on productions by pop stars such as Adele.


Previous graduates from this subject area have gone on to work in a variety of roles such as freelance music producer, design support engineer, senior broadcast engineer, commercial manager UK & Europe, software developer and senior product test engineer in organisations including Solid State Logic, BBC, Warner Music Group, Sky and Calrec Audio Ltd.
