Audio Engineering Fundamentals Diploma Program

Your friends know to always turn to you for the best music recommendations. Your music library is flawless with every song in crystal clear resolution, and EQ’d for perfectly balanced sound. The debate of vinyl versus digital is something you’ve shared your opinion on more than once, and you know that the producer of an album is every bit as important as the talent on the other side of the microphone. Are you ready to amp up your audio career?

The 12-month Audio Engineering Fundamentals program offers you practical knowledge for careers like the following:

  • Recording Engineer
  • Music Producer
  • Sound Designer
  • MIDI Programmer
  • Assistant Engineer
  • Professional or Home Recording Studio Manager/Operator

The Audio Engineering Fundamentals program focuses primarily on the magic that happens behind the mixing board. Technology has spurred on an explosion in the audio industry. Talented individuals are no longer limited to positions at major studios. With new software and breakthroughs in affordable equipment, audiophiles can now set up their own studios and production houses.

This focused AEF curriculum will give you the skills and training you need to dive into the industry, including: Ableton Live—Sound Composition & Production—Sound Design—Mixing & Mastering.

If audio engineering is in your future, Centre for Arts and Technology – one of the leading creative and technical schools in Canada – will help take you there.
