FEKTAbbreviation: PU-AUDAcad. year: 2017/2018

Programme: Audioengineering

Length of Study: 2 years

Accredited from: 20.10.2015Accredited until: 1.11.2019

Profile

The study programme provides interdisciplinary studies for MSc degree in audio engineering. The programme focuses on the education of professionals - sound engineers and audio technicians with technical and artistic overview in the area of audio equipment, audio signal processing, music direction and studio practice. Students are educated in the field of audio electronics, studio equipment and digital audio signal processing, and gain practical experience in studio practice.
The study of this branch can be commenced only after the students have successfully completed the bachelor’s degree programme and passed the bachelor’s final state examination, preferably in a programme oriented towards audio engineering or multimedia.
Instruction is provided primarily by the Department of Telecommunications FEEC and the Faculty of Music of JAMU in Brno. A wide range of optional courses along with individual technical and artistic projects and the master’s final work enable students to focus more closely on the area of studio audio engineering, audio technology, audio signal processing and multimedia.
Student can complement his theoretical knowledge by studying courses theoretical extension of the field of higher mathematics and physics. To extend the range of their knowledge the students select courses from other disciplines master's degree of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (FEEC) BUT, as well as language courses and general education.

Key learning outcomes

The graduate will possess detailed knowledge in the field of audio signal processing, multimedia, spatial sound and modern audio technologies and knowledge of and its utilization in the studio practice, multimedia installations, etc. The area of the knowledge extends from the range of sound waves and audio signals through their analogue and digital processing, compression and transmission to design and realization of audio systems, from musical theory through recording practice to sound and multimedia installations. He is familiar with the principle of room acoustics and sound reinforcement using modern sound systems.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The graduate will possess detailed knowledge in the field of audio signal processing, multimedia, spatial sound and modern audio technologies and knowledge of and its utilization in the studio practice, multimedia installations, etc. The area of the knowledge extends from the range of sound waves and audio signals through their analogue and digital processing, compression and transmission to design and realization of audio systems, from musical theory through recording practice to sound and multimedia installations. He is familiar with the principle of room acoustics and sound reinforcement using modern sound systems.
Graduates are fully qualified in area of audio electronics, acoustics, electro-acoustic and multimedia. The graduates have also knowledge in area of studio audio engineering, sound recording practice, sound reinforcement and technical realization of audio systems. Thanks to the good theoretical foundations coupled with sufficiently universal education in applications-oriented studies he can be expected to accommodate to all concrete requirements of his future professional practice also in other related areas.
Graduates in this branch of MSc studies will find application in the research, development, design and operation of broadcasting, post-production and recording studios, theatres, in the staging musical performances, multimedia production, in companies engaged in the production, sale and service of audio and music electronics, in companies engaged in the design of studios and space for audio production, with complex installation of AV technology, etc. In addition to their technical knowledge of problems, they will be prepared to perform higher executive and managerial functions. Their sufficient theoretical education provides the required basis for possible enlargement of their knowledge in doctoral studies.

Entry requirements

The condition for admitting is a completed secondary education and passing the talent examination and written examination from the field of the audio engineering.
