This is our flagship course, responsible for producing many internationally successful sound engineers.

This course offers in-depth and specialised knowledge, together with practical skills and competence. In the first year of study students are introduced to the fundamentals of audio theory and what being a sound engineer is all about. In the second year, students learn advanced recording techniques and in-depth analysis of instruments. Audio-visual post-production is taken to another level and radio production is dealt with in detail utilizing our campus radio station facilities. In the third year, students will specialize and start working closely with real world situations, as well as studying acoustic principles, studio design and music business principles.
