About the Major

audio-engineering

Do you love sound? Have you always wondered how audio equipment actually works? Are you ready to dive into the exciting world of recording technology and applied electronics? If you’ve answered yes to these three questions, the Audio Engineering Technology program may be right for you.

We believe our students should be skilled in analog and digital electronics before entering the  eld of audio. Through our Audio Engineering Technology program, students learn the ins and outs of audio equipment not only by using tools to create professional music productions, but also by pulling those very tools apart to learn how to maintain, repair, and design them.

About the Audio Engineering Technology Minor

This minor is intended to ensure minimum baseline knowledge in audio analog/digital circuits, systems, production, and software applications. Learn more.

About the Digital Media Technology Minor

This minor offers audio technology majors the opportunity to gain technical experience in all levels of video production-portable, live studio, and post-production editing and effects. Additionally, study in this area exposes students to experimental applications and projects involved with sound and moving image in performance, art installation, Web, and theatrical and non-traditional venues.
