It has been designed and developed in response to the growing demand in the areas of Music Technology, and it aims to equip students with a range of practical knowledge and skills for the application of music technology to a variety of digital media. As well as traditional music for media, such as film and video, students will be expected to explore and develop interactive compositions, focusing on the interface between machine and human gesture. Students will be expected to have had previous experience in Music Technology composition.

Academics from the Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences are able to supervise a wide range of specialist research topics and are happy to discuss individual interests.

Anglia Ruskin University undergraduate Open Days generally attract around 1000 prospective students to the campus plus members of their family and friends. When considering options at Postgraduate level, Anglia Ruskin University recognises the importance of individual needs and interests and this event provides the opportunity to discuss issues on a one-to-one basis.
