The four pathways on Ravensbourne’s cluster of broadcast technology degree courses are very hands-on, blending common content and pathway-specific lectures with practical exercises to ensure our graduates are the rounded and flexible broadcast engineers that the media industries want. You are able to take on a variety of engineering and technical operational roles both inside and outside your specialist area.
The other pathways in this cluster are: BSc (Hons) Broadcast Technology, BSc (Hons) Broadcast Information Technology, and BSc (Hons) Outside Broadcast Technology.
This course will give you an in-depth knowledge of your specialist broadcast area and transferable skills in technological and theoretical concepts, research and analysis, problem-solving and collaboration. You will be an engineer who can design and support audio equipment and systems in radio and TV.
Students on this course can expect to gain work experience and often paid employment with local radio channels – both BBC and commercial, and with broadcaster such as Sky, BBC and ITV. The course boasts an excellent track record in graduate recruitment.
