Audio Engineering

Love music? A career in audio engineering could be a great fit! Audio engineering majors go on to become audio producers, music producers, sound engineers on blockbuster movies and broadcasting professionals.

Audio engineers are needed for a lot more than just movies and concerts. Medical device companies, translation services, captioning companies and even video games use audio engineers.

Audio engineering is a great way to break into the music industry. The contacts and connections from every day projects are vast. While a degree is not necessarily a requirement, the chances of landing a solid job in this field are higher with a four-year degree. Some mixing engineers who work on albums also get their take of the royalties, which can really add up for a popular recording. Classes under an audio engineering major include technical courses, music and even business.
