Certificate Programs in Audio Engineering

Students earn a certificate upon the completion of courses exploring a particular discipline. Programs, which usually can be completed in one year or less, generally are narrow in focus and are intended to show that a student has acquired a certain level of expertise.

What is a certificate in audio engineering? The science of audio engineering involves the concept of capturing and moving sound from one place to another. Audio engineers take the sound from an original source, such as a live singer, and disperse that sound clearly and audibly to an audience. Course offerings in a certificate program may include recording technology, mixing, the science of sound, live production, the business of audio recording and streaming media, and webcast.  

Students who complete a program may attain a variety of technical skills related to reproducing sound in live or recorded formats. Organizational, interpersonal and communication skills, which are also possible skills learned, are especially valuable as audio engineers often work on a team with other technicians.

The cost of a certificate is dependent on several factors, most importantly, the type of program and the length of study. Campus and online options exist, with some offering completion in a matter of weeks while others may take more than a year.

As technology continues to improve the methods for transporting sound, the job market for audio engineers is expected to remain a healthy one. Depending on the focus of the certificate program, potential employers include music, film and television studios, touring bands and concert halls, as well as government and educational institutions. Graduates may be qualified for a variety of positions, such as producer, sound technician, game and audio designer, mix engineer, live sound engineer, dialogue editor, music supervisor, sound technician and acoustic consultant.

Certificate programs are offered by numerous institutions around the world, with intensive on-campus or flexible online options available. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
