About the Program
The Audio Engineering Technology major is part of the Electrical Engineering Technology program. The Electrical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
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.

The ♦ course is considered critical.
In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major. Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful. These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”.
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
