Introduction to Composing for Film
|Program start date
This course offers a practical and analytical approach to writing music to the moving image and, covers the specific challenges involved in composing and producing music for film and TV.
To avoid disappointment, please book your place on the course 72 hours prior to its commencement.Through theoretical and practical classes, you will develop a solid understanding of how music works in a film and how to create it.
The course is designed for students who have experience composing music using software (e.g. Logic, Cubase, Ableton, Sibelius). You will be supported throughout the compositional and technical processes of the class's assignments, and will learn the practical and theoretical aspects of creating film music.
Structural Mechanics & Materials 1This class provides a basic introduction to the mechanics of structures, engineering materials, and the basic principles of structural behaviour.
Civil Engineering Design ProjectsThis class provides an introduction to the design process for civil and structural engineering projects including an introduction to engineering drawing and AutoCad. You'll apply the skills and knowledge learned in this class and CL111 to design, construct and test a model of a bridge.
Basic Mechanics & Fluid StaticsThe class introduces the essential principles of mechanics. It includes kinematics, dynamics and fluid statics. The aim is to lay the foundation for subsequent modules including hydraulics and water engineering.
Engineering Geology & Soil MechanicsThis class aims to introduce key aspects for engineering geology for civil engineering and basic concepts of soil mechanics.
Civil Engineering & the EnvironmentThis class aims to introduce you to the structure, processes, technologies, practices and impacts of the construction industry and to the assessment and management of environmental risks.
Structural Mechanics & Materials 2
To class aims to introduce you to advanced topics in structural engineering and limit state design.
Land Surveying & MappingThis class provides a basic understanding of the concepts and application of land surveying for civil engineering purposes and the use of maps and plans in civil engineering.
Hydraulics & HydrologyThis class aims to develop understanding of applied hydraulics in civil engineering including simple examples of pipe and open channel flow and control structures and develop an understanding of the processes underlying catchment hydrology.
Soil MechanicsThis class aims to aims to give an introduction to the governing principles of geotechnical engineering, in particular stress and settlement analysis and groundwater flow.
Chemistry & Materials ScienceThis class aims to provide practical insights to fundamental chemistry and materials science and their roles in a wide range of civil and environmental engineering applications.
Structural Engineering 1This class develops the theory and practice of analysis of statically indeterminate structures followed by an introduction to structural steelwork design, reinforced concrete design and the principles of structural timber design.
Geotechnical Engineering 1This class aims to aims to give an introduction to the governing principles of geotechnical design at the ultimate limit state.
Water Engineering 1This class aims to introduce common concepts, applications and design calculation methods used in water engineering and hydrology.
Construction Project ManagementProvides an introduction to:
Environmental EngineeringThis class aims to provide an introduction to environmental engineering including air, water, ground and subsurface systems as well as environmental impact assessment.
Engineering MathematicsThis class aims to aims to give an introduction to differential and integral calculus, differential equations, and statistics and probability and develop applications relevant to civil and environmental engineering.
This class aims to introduce you to key principles, theory and techniques used in the analysis and design of transport systems.
Geotechnical Engineering 2This class aims to cover the design of geotechnical structures from shallow foundations to slopes and retaining walls, based on Eurocode 7.
Water Engineering 2This class aims to develop an understanding of a wide range of water engineering theory and processes including hydraulic structures, complex free surface flows, water treatment and wastewater treatment processes.
Solid Waste Management and Contaminated LandThis class aims to develop a critical understanding of the process involved with management of primarily municipal solid waste and provides an insight into the remediation of contaminated land.
Individual ProjectThis class aims to undertake an individual research investigation, including a literature study, critical assessments and original research work, which is presented in the form of a dissertation and poster.
Project PlanningThis class aims to provide you with experience of planning and managing small-scale projects.
Learning & teaching
Our learning and teaching aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to build a successful career as an engineer.
Our teaching methods include:
Our courses also benefit from specialist lectures, case studies and supervision, which is provided by representatives of our industrial partners.
We assess students individually and in groups, using a mix of methods ranging from class exams, coursework, laboratory reports and design submissions. Engineers are expected to be able to communicate well – orally, in writing and through drawing/sketching. Our assessment, therefore, seeks to test this range of skills.
We've been awarded the Athena Swan Gold Award for our work supporting women in engineering.More reasons to study at Strathclyde
Glasgow is Scotland's biggest & most cosmopolitan city
Our campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow. National Geographic named Glasgow as one of its 'Best of the World' destinations, while Rough Guide readers have voted Glasgow the world’s friendliest city!
