Diploma of Audio Engineering & Sound Production
Audio Engineering + Sound Production is a hands-on production-based course that is directly in sync with the audio industry. It explores the fundamentals of sound and music production, the operation of both studio and live sound equipment, and event audio production.
You will gain the core skills you need to pursue a career in the audio industry, have the chance to collaborate with your peers, build your portfolio and practical experience, and be mentored by well-connected industry professionals in Australia's leading, award-winning audio engineering course.
This practical diploma will give you a solid understanding of digital audio workstations and analogue consoles, as well as how to operate live sound equipment. Explore software-based synths with an emphasis on editing, arranging and mixing, and master microphones, mixing desks and signal processors, and record, overdub and mix a band in the studio.
