Would you like to know how audio signal and audio information in multimedia is generated, processed, distributed, and stored? Does music recording and mixing interest you? You will learn how to design, implement, and use audio devices and audio systems, and gain knowledge and skills in the area of audio communications and audio engineering.
Would you like to know how sound is converted into an electrical signal and vice versa, how to improve your acoustical environment, how to reduce noise? You will learn to: design, construct, test, use and maintain electroacoustic transducers and systems (including ultrasonic ones); investigate and design the acoustical characteristics of open and closed spaces; analyse sound with respect to the features of human hearing, and many other interesting aspects of electroacoustics.
This profile focuses on sound and acoustics. The following knowledge can be obtained:
- measurement and analysis of sound and vibrations
- analysis of acoustic comfort
- design and testing of electroacoustic transducers and systems
- familiarity with the systems for sound recording, processing, storing and reproduction
- programming of audio effects and sound synthesis
- psychoacoustical sound quality analysis
- recording and mixing of stereo and multichannel audio
- analysis and diagnostics through machine learning and artificial intelligence
- design of sound distribution systems through network, TV and radio
The work of engineers in this field is very diverse. This profile trains students for the following jobs:
- designer of noise and vibration monitoring and protection systems
- room acoustics and sound reinforcement consultant
- designer of ultrasonic systems in industry and medicine
- product sound quality designer (automotive, home appliances…)
- designer of audio effects, virtual instruments, and game audio
- designer of audio- and communication systems
- audio engineer
Students are expected to possess the knowledge covered in Physics and Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering courses offered in the first year of the FER Bachelor programme.
Students who were never enrolled in any Bachelor study programme offered at FER are encouraged to master the selected chapters from these courses individually, in agreement with their supervisors, to be able to follow the courses of this profile with success.
Students enrolled at FER who have finished a Bachelor programme other than Electrical Engineering and Information Technology do not have to take or pass any differential courses.
