Welcome to Entertainment Engineering at the University of Derby!
Housed within the School of Engineering in the College of Science and Engineering, our subject area boasts an array of cutting-edge facilities such as 3D multichannel sound rooms, a hemi-anechoic chamber, a virtual reality cave, live event spaces, and advanced electronics labs.
Since its inception in 1999, our undergraduate course, BSc (Hons) Sound, Light, and Live Event Engineering, has enabled hundreds of students to excel as live event professionals worldwide.
In the postgraduate realm, our MSc Audio Engineering course, introduced in 2015, is enriched by the research capacities of the Electro-Acoustics Research Lab (EARLab). Additionally, our collaboration with the Institute of Acoustics has led to the IOA Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control and the MSc Applied Acoustics, which have been guiding students and professionals in acoustics since the mid-1990s.
We maintain active educational partnerships and collaborations with industry stalwarts such as Meyer Sound, L-Acoustics, Solotech, Anna Valley, and Cloudbass. Furthermore, our dedicated faculty is engaged with well-known institutions including the Audio Engineering Society (AES), the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), and the World Health Organization (WHO).
