Audio Engineering and Music Technology prepares students for jobs in the fields of music, video, television, broadcasting, and film by teaching them the art and technical craft of sound recording, music recording, and studio production.The science of sound, as well as the techniques and equipment that are used to capture and improve it, are the center of our audio engineering program. Our courses focus on studying how audio equipment works and how to integrate technology into the daily operations of recording studios, television networks, and radio stations.
Upon acceptance, F1CA students will have additional requirements above and beyond the base requirements for Audio Engineering. These requirements include, but are not limited to:
- Participation in Recording Projects
- Assisting in school events when needed.
