Students with busy schedules or in distant locations often turn to online courses. These courses are offered at almost every level of education and in a variety of subjects.
What is an online course in audio engineering? One common type of audio engineering course is focused on vocational studies, with classes on how to operate soundboards and efficiently produce music and other audio using the latest software. For example, a company that sells popular sound production equipment might offer an online seminar about their products. Another category of course might include topics focused on the physical properties of sound. Students in these courses might use theories of psychoacoustics and bioacoustics to apply mathematical models to the design of ideal audio experiences. Sometimes, the term 'acoustics engineering' is used to describe the more theoretical type of course and 'audio production engineering' is used to describe the applied courses.
Benefits of online audio courses tend to include the opportunity to collaborate and network with other music professionals and scientists. They also often provide the technical skills necessary to pursue individual projects.
Courses have different tuition costs based on the duration of study and the institution. Check each program for definitive information regarding cost.
A graduate of a shorter online audio engineering program might find a job as an audio and video technician. This opportunity can be available at almost any type of company. Duties usually include the operation of recording equipment, with the object of recording being anything from floor shows to business conferences. A student who engages in a thorough investigation of sound in an online course might expect to be considered for a position as a vibrations engineer in the automotive or aeronautics industry. This position might involve using knowledge of sound physics and materials science to utilize mathematical modeling to develop solutions for complex design issues.

This Specialization will give you the knowledge and tools you need to record and produce professional sounding music. You will begin by developing your identity, vision, and intention as an artist and producer. Next, you will learn the technical aspects of music production, including how sound is translated into audio signals, recording techniques, and effects such as reverb, delay, and compression. [+]
