Program Overview

The Audio Engineering Diploma Program offers students the opportunity to study all aspects of modern audio engineering, preparing them for a career as audio professionals in various fields. A unique combination of theoretical study, practical classes and hands-on studio time gives students a thorough knowledge of a broad range of topics related to audio production and how the music industry works. Students will have access to industry standard professional hardware and software, including large format inline consoles, control surfaces, hardware and software processors and software such as ProTools and Cubase.

Practical assignments are varied and are designed to test students' skills in many areas, including band recordings, post-production, audio editing, mixing, electronic music production, audio restoration, etc. For musicians, practical assignments give them an opportunity to record their own music, alternately students are encouraged to bring in outside talent to record for their assignments. Outside of class-time, students individually book all practical time; our facilities are open 12 hours per day, 6 days a week, which allows students to design a schedule that works for them.

Course Contents

Principles of Sound and Audio Practice:

This module will introduce students to the concept of sound as a physical phenomenon and will enable them to predict its behaviour in different situations. Students will also be introduced to the fundamental concepts of audio production, including the theoretical foundations and applications of EQs, dynamics processors and various types of effects, concepts of signal routing and the basic applications of microphones and loudspeakers.
Key areas of study include: Sound theory, The human hearing system, Psychoacoustics, Decibels, Acoustics, Electronics, Basic audio signal routing and wiring, Audio editing, Microphones and Loudspeakers.

Information, Communication and Professional Media Practice:

This module aims to introduce the student to concepts and routines of academic research, critique and writing and develop tools for good study practice and management. It aims to introduce the student to theories of culture and communication, develop a basic understanding of the creative media industries and the students’ role as professional creative media practitioners.
Key areas of study include: Concepts of and reasons for research, Writing skills, Intellectual copyright and plagiarism, Introduction to culture and cultural movements, Overview of the creative media industries.

Signal Flow and Processing:

This module is designed to help students build theoretical knowledge that is necessary to operate a modern professional studio environment. Students will practice to set up and complete their first music productions. Furthermore they will advance in the operation of audio effects to a more sophisticated level.
Key areas of study include: Audio editing, Signal flow diagrams and applications, Digital Audio Workstations, Equalization (EQ), Effects, Dynamic range processors, Audio editing.

Audio Production:

The module encourages students to employ a practical approach that will allow them to discover their own workflows and develop skills that are transferable between different mixing environments. Students will be introduced to the process creating an audio production, and they will develop mixing skills through the application of various hardware and software processes.
Key areas of study include: Console types and differences, Workflows: analogue, digital, hybrid, Production planning, Recording Techniques s and concepts, Mixing techniques and concepts.

Sound for Media:

The aim of this module is to provide students with a wide range of professional audio tools and techniques related to the multimedia field. The main focus is on audio preparation for different media, including visuals.
Key areas of study include: Synchronisation, Audio mastering, Film sound, Location recording, Broadcast / TV / Media preparation, MIDI.

Advanced Studio Studies:

Focusing on advanced studio recording & mixing techniques, this module aims to prepare students for the workplace. Topics such as production techniques, arranging, creating stereo and surround masters, studio etiquette and advanced mixing techniques will be covered.
