Audio Engineering offers students, who have a deep interest in sound and music, the opportunity to combine a rigorous electrical engineering education with additional specialized courses offered both by the UM ECE department as well as the Frost School of Music. 

About

 In particular, the Audio Engineering option combines traditional electrical engineering studies with audio studies in areas such as acoustics, speech and audio signal processing, digital audio, transducers, speech and audio coding and transmission systems, post-production, noise cancellation, architectural acoustics, and recording, thereby providing a multi-disciplinary education.

Our Audio Engineering graduates are highly sought by industry and have been pursuing successful careers in music/entertainment, multimedia, telecommunications, analog and digital electronics, and in the hearing aid/medical instrumentation industries, or have chosen graduate study. Students enrolled in Audio Engineering have access to a variety of well-equipped laboratories, both in the UM ECE Department, as well as in the Frost School of Music. For example, students have access to the Gusman Concert Hall, which houses a professional recording studio with automated console and multi-track recording. There, students can record live concerts ranging from small jazz groups to a symphony orchestra. In addition, Audio Engineering students use the Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, which also features a fully professional recording studio, analog and digital signal processing equipment and audio test equipment.
