The Music technology course at IT, Tralee explores the creative possibilities of technology in the areas of audio production, music composition and digital media. You use industry-standard software and hardware to develop skills in sound recording, live sound engineering, audio post-production, sound design, live electronics, sound synthesis and sensor technology. The course also encourages you to use music technology as a creative tool in composition.
Our students work across media, formulate independent thinking and develop team work skills. As the course progresses, you will work on multi-disciplinary group projects with students from the related disciplines of visual effects and motion graphics, TV, radio, film, games and new media.
The course is delivered through a blend of interactive online learning, group discussions, critique sessions, workshops, guest speakers from industry, hands-on projects, studio work and collaborative projects. The industry work placement, which takes place in third year, is a vital component of the degree. Alternatively, you can work as part of an internal design team, creating digital content entries for national and international media applications awards.
