Getting into the music industry is a tough gig, but our music technology degree gives you a foot in the door.
You perform in – and run – recording studio sessions. You create, produce, mix and master stereo and surround recordings. You perform and engineer live performances, programme sound synthesizers, set up and run an internet radio station, create and produce radio broadcasts, and create and dub music, sound effects and foley to video and other media. You get involved in some exciting stuff using the latest state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. These include the same Digidesign hardware and software used extensively in the music industry, so you develop the skills you need as either a music producer or engineer.
As an added bonus, you can take the Digidesign and Pro Tools exams at no cost, and purchase their products at a significant discount.Visit myspace.com/teesmusictech for the latest news, or search Facebook for teesmusictech.This is an award of Teesside University delivered in partnership with Middlesbrough College (campus code 2).

We're also happy for you to apply if you're a mature student and can demonstrate your skills and passion for the subject. You're expected to come for an interview.
