Overview

This course will prepare you for a career in Broadcast Engineering, supporting you to continually improve your skills and the quality of service you provide. Through the programme, you will demonstrate technical, research, analytical, planning, design and organisational skills which are highly transferable and can be used in a wide variety of disciplines.

Broadcast technologies are continually evolving and converging with other information and media distribution formats, including the web, games and virtual environments. The UK traditionally has a high calibre of recognition in the TV production and technology industries. Our course aims to capitalise on and maintain the UK expertise in this area, whilst continually evolving the delivery of technology in this rapidly changing area.

Our course is designed both to prepare you for a technical or commercial career and provide a route to the specialisation needed for a research career. It is also suitable for graduates of internet and communications related courses who have worked for several years and wish to update your knowledge at the forefront of the discipline.

The programme is designed to enable you to develop a thorough technical and theoretical understanding, focusing on vocational and practical skills directly relevant to industry. Alongside the development of technical and analytical skills, you will also expand your team and professional development skills through group work, peer review and reflective evaluation, as well as consideration of legal and ethical issues.

We are committed to supporting the broadcast industry and continue to work with and support key stakeholders. We also aim to act as a broker between industry, universities and students to place students in appropriate research positions and placements.

The University is actively involved in SMPTE and we host SMPTE regional meetings at Birmingham City University.

Career opportunities

The course is also suitable for people who are upskilling early in their career in broadcast technology organisations. However you would also benefit from the course if you have relevant qualifications and short experience in an associated discipline.

The course will also be a natural extension to broadcast technology first degree graduates.
