Congratulations to Live and Studio Sound graduate Kath Gray who has just been named Young Technologist of the Year by the Royal Television Society. Following her graduation in 2013 Kath has worked for NEP Visions as a guarantee engineer. She has guaranteed several major shows and is currently overseeing some of the contributions from Wimbledon. It’s great to see young engineers being recognised and of course we’re thrilled to see a Media Technology graduate go on to be so successful. Well done Kath!

An Alternative to Industry…

If you’ve ever spoken to our students or course team, you’ll be aware that our graduates benefit from excellent employment rates. But not everyone wants to head directly into industry and there other options.

Sound Engineering graduate Hugo recently checked in to let us know that he’s now enjoying working towards a master’s degree by research at the University of Sydney, Australia. He originally signed up to a MArch Architectural Science (Audio and Acoustics) but found his knowledge and experience from Solent put him too far ahead! His Dean suggested he peruse his research interests directly instead.

Hugo is now researching acoustic ceiling systems and will be working with Australian architectural firm BVN on the design of their new head office in Sydney. BVN are world-renowned and have been involved in major projects such as Olympic venues.

Hugo has been very complimentary of the course team at Solent and says “the Sound Engineering degree from Solent is one of the most valuable degrees in acoustics out there, as I discovered when I was applying to different masters and asking around”. He also highly recommends Sydney University and their facilities if anyone feels like travelling half way around the world to get a masters!

We wish Hugo all the best for his studies and future projects.

We can’t provide the Australian climate but Solent alumni could be eligible for up to a 50% reduction of tuition fees if returning to study a postgraduate course. More information here: https://www.solent.ac.uk/finance/tuition-fees/discounted-fees
