About this program

Audio Engineering

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.

Explore acoustic design, audio electronics and music production and how this can be applied to mixed media such as TV, film and games with a Bachelor degree. Use highly sophisticated equipment and recording studios fitted with 5.1 surround sound and all the latest gear, including: SSL Duality 48 Channel consoles, Pro Tools HD DAWs, Neumann and Royer mics and Empirical Lab Distressors.

Master post-production, surround sound and large-scale live sound systems, develop an area of specialisation, and create a tailored showreel designed to kick-start your career in the industry.

In only 2 years you can graduate with a Bachelor degree thanks to our accelerated full-time course. Part-time study is also available to domestic students. International students many choose to complete the course in 3 years rather than the accelerated 2 year option.

International undergraduate applicants must show the following:

  • Attend an interview in person or online.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age on commencement of studies.
