Audio engineering, which is sometimes referred to as sound engineering, is the discipline that deals with the technical aspects of sound production. As an audio engineer, you could work in a range of different areas. These include music production, video games, live performances and radio, among others. As well as working in pre-release production, you may also have opportunities to work with live performances, doing live sound mixing, sound reinforcement and sound checking.
During a masters in Audio Engineering, you will build upon the your knowledge and understanding gained at undergraduate level, taking your abilities to the next level. Some examples of modules you might study are:
- Game Audio
- Live Sound Reinforcement
- Sound Design and Synthesis
- Mixing for Screen and Broadcast
- Advanced Digital Audio Applications
