The Musical Audio Engineering degree program is designed to prepare students for the broadest spectrum of recording studio operations; the equipment used in recording studios; live recording environments; in-depth understanding of equipment design, maintenance, and operations; and detailed knowledge of signal processing for audio applications. Graduates of this program will not only be able to operate audio equipment, but they will be able to design audio equipment as skilled musicians. This unique program includes basic courses in mathematics and physical sciences, broadening courses in humanities and social sciences, foundation courses in electrical engineering, and music courses as well as musical performance.
To participate in this program, students must be accepted into both the School of Music and the College of Engineering. More information can be found on the School of Music’s Musical Audio Engineering website (http://audioengineering.music.ua.edu/) and audition requirements can be found at https://music.ua.edu/apply-audition/.
