I recently caught up with Adam, who is about to finish his year placement at Focusrite; here are his thoughts and reflections.
“I’m currently studying Bsc (Hons) Audio Engineering and I’ll be starting my final year in September. I applied to the course because, unlike many people, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. My degree title is actually in the name of the company I’ve been working for – Focusrite Audio Engineering Ltd. I picked this course and University specifically because it stood out head and shoulders above the rest. I visited a few other Universities with much stricter entry requirements before visiting Solent but the team, facilities and course in general stood out by a mile.”

Today students studying Audio Systems were treated to a visit from a guest speaker. The Extron SI 26CT Ceiling Speaker dropped by to show off its coaxial dual driver design and switchable transformer for line distribution applications. The 6.5 inch woofer is situated directly behind a 1 inch titanium-coated dome tweeter in an attempt to provide accurate sound reproduction over a wide angle.

Studying media technology based courses at Solent is not just about learning how equipment is used, we also need to have some understanding how the equipment functions and works. This involves learning basic electronics. Electronic labs are conducted with both lectures and seminars, with the key theoretical information being delivered via lectures which are followed up with labs, helping with hands-on understanding and bringing the theory and practise together.
