Audio Engineering Technology

Learn how audio technology hardware works when you design, build and test a range of technologies, such as mixers, microphone amplifiers, power amps and other signal processors, loudspeakers and short-wavelength radio frequency channel methods, like Bluetooth. Combine these mechanical and electrical audio elements to record, play and amplify sound in public performance spaces.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one of 10 academic colleges at Purdue University. The Polytechnic specializes in team-based labs where you’ll test ideas, take things apart and put them back together — only better. You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers desire.
