With a sufficiently wide basis, a high adaptability of graduates is ensured in the specific requirements of their future professional practice, not only in the field of audio engineering, but also in sound and music directing area, or in the field of multimedia, electrical engineering, and electronics.

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 analog 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 the area of audio electronics, acoustics, electro-acoustic and multimedia. The graduates have also knowledge in the 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.
