Audio Engineering & Production
Behind every great song is the work of those wizards of studio magic called audio engineers. These talented and versatile individuals can also be found in many other occupations including live concerts, film and radio, videogames, ringtones, corporate events, theatre, and many more.

This full-time, 48-week program will guide you through the exciting world of sound over the course of four terms.
In Term One, students are introduced to a wide variety of recording techniques, audio equipment and music theory in the studio and classroom, including acoustic principles, songwriting, audio in film and television, digital and multi-track recording, and studio applications and technologies
In Term Two, students get to apply these techniques during hands-on recording sessions, critical listening exercises, MIDI applications, studio maintenance, and sound editing for film, television and DJ arts
Term Three continues to expand and refine recording techniques while exploring live sound, orchestration, film and television soundtracks, the music industry, modern production mixing and mastering, and a major project applying acoustic principles to studio design
In Term Four, your accumulated knowledge is brought together for final projects in MIDI, mixing and mastering, with a focus on interactive audio, communications and career strategies
What The Faculty Are Saying
“I’ve been consistently impressed with the students’ eagerness to jump into songwriting when most of them have absolutely no experience with it. For the final assignment of every semester, there is (amazingly) always at least one song that makes me think, ‘that song could be on the radio tomorrow’”
