the only abet accredited audio engineering technology degree program in the world

The Audio Engineering Technology (AET) major is designed to connect the art, science and practical application of audio engineering technology with a theoretical foundation to prepare students for all aspects of an career in Audio Engineering. AET graduates work in a wide variety of audio engineering technology fields, including operation, installation, manufacturing, and design of audio systems and equipment used in music, film and live event production.

Students in this program complete the B.S. or B.A. degree with a major in Audio Engineering Technology. AET students also pursue supplemental studies in a career related minor such as computer science, mass communications production, music or a business discipline such as music business or entrepreneurship.


Program Educational Objective

Within 5 years of completing their degree, graduates of the program should contribute to the art, science and practical application of audio engineering while pursuing careers in the application, installation, research, development, operation and maintenance of audio recording, reproduction, processing, and reinforcement systems.


Student Learning Outcomes

By graduation, Audio Engineering Technology students will have:

  1. Explored and acquired broad-based knowledge of audio engineering technology and demonstrated proficiency in the application of critical listening and practical audio engineering skills.
  2. Applied mathematics, physics, hearing science and electronic engineering to the identification, analyses and solving of theoretical and technical audio engineering problems through integrated and reflective learning.
  3. Demonstrated organizational leadership skills with an ability to function on technical teams.
  4. Formed short- and long-term plans for a career that are reflective of personal and professional ambitions.
