College of Engineering

Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Option in Audio Engineering (code COE_BS02) (127 units)

This option is designed to train students for work in the audio engineering industry. The curriculum in the College of the Arts will show students in the program how the arts and entertainment industry uses modern technology in the recording, processing and creation of sound. The curriculum in the College of Engineering will teach students how to analyze and design the electronic and computer components used in the arts and entertainment industry.

As this option is not ABET accredited, students are urged to either take a second major in Computer Engineering (follow the Computer Engineering Track) or Electrical Engineering (follow the Electrical Engineering Track)

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade C or better must be achieved in MATH 122 within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade C or better must be achieved in MATH 123 and PHYS 151 within one calendar year.
