Engineering the future of the media

27.04.2006


The University of Surrey has marked the launch a new range of degree programmes in Media Engineering with the opening of a purpose-built laboratory to provide students with access to professional quality audio-visual studio production facilities.



Integrating a traditional degree in electronics and computing with an understanding of modern digital systems engineering for music, video and computer graphics production, Media Engineering should be of interest to anyone with an interest in music or film and an aptitude for problem-solving. Over the past decade digital technologies have revolutionised the music and entertainment industries. Media Engineering is a new range of degree programmes developed in response to industry demand for graduate engineers with the skills to develop digital technologies.

The Media Engineering Laboratory, opened by Vice-Chancellor Professor Christopher Snowden, includes a television recording studio with professional quality audio and video production facilities. Media Engineering students also have access to specialist test equipment for audio and video system design. This facility supports students in developing a practical understanding of the design and creative use of digital technologies for music, TV, film and games production.


Media Engineering offers excellent employment prospects in a diverse range of media-related industries. The School of Electronics and Physical Sciences has an excellent track record for graduate employment, with over 99 per cent employment in previous years. The UK is a world leader in the media production industries with numerous film post-production, broadcast and games companies located in London and the South East.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
