About the Program

When you major in audio engineering technology at Purdue University, you’ll learn to create sound by building a guitar or a pick-up. You will focus on designing, building, and testing a variety of technologies, such as microphone amplifiers, mixers and other signal processors, Bluetooth and other radio frequency channels, power amplifiers, and loud speakers. Then you will combine these audio elements to properly record, play, and reinforce sound in a public performance space.
