Sound Project Showcase - Celebrating 5 years of a successful collaboration

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that for the fifth consecutive year, we have joined forces with FASS to facilitate a multidisciplinary collaboration between 3rd-year students in the BSc in Games Development (BGD) and the Bachelor of Music and Sound Design (MSD).

The two cohorts have done an amazing job combining their areas of expertise and have created seven exciting games with fantastic music and sound effects.

FEIT Prototype Exhibition - Spring 2021

The Faculty of Engineering and IT Prototype Exhibition is an exhibition of student prototypes that is hosted each year at the Faculty. This event aims at celebrating students' successes and recognising outstanding work. This exhibition compiles the best student prototypes from all the project-based subjects in our faculty. 

In light of not being able to organise our usual large in-person showcase at the moment, we will instead host this event online using GatherTown. A video chat platform designed to make virtual interactions more human.

PhD Research Projects: Expressions of Interest

Dolby Australia and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have joined forces to examine the use of immersive audio in games.  

The project will develop new approaches to sound and game design to create next-level player experiences.  Using practice-based research methods we will create and test a series of game prototypes that feature immersive audio.

As part of this initiative, we are recruiting a team of postgraduate researchers to explore the future of spatial audio in the context of real-time game engines.  Researchers will work in a state-of-the-art studio environment as part of a research team with expert industry, academic, creative and technical support.
