This course is the first of its kind in Australia to combine the domains of sound and music, and prepare students for new emerging domains that require the confluence of sound in design and interaction.

The course appeals to students with an interest in music, sound design, creative arts, design and technology, or interactive multimedia. It converges creative practice and innovative design solution through music and sound. It offers a unique, contemporary sound and music degree experience by merging art and technology across domains of composition, entertainment and audio technology, as well as combining features of music and audio engineering with interaction design. By the time of graduation, students should have a professional portfolio of creative music and sound design work.
