Episode 4: How to become an audio engineer

Our fourth podcast episode describes the road to become an audio engineer at the IMM (Institute for Music and Media) at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf.

Being able to finish a first-class study course with the aim to become an audio engineer, requires a lot of underlying conditions: a professional equipment at the technical college is just as essential as teaching programmes specifically tailored to the distinct interests and vocational fields. In order to be prepared for the demands of their future work life, the students need an excellent training both musically and technically. This requires that student prospects have got talent and interest in both areas. Their existing prior knowledge and giftedness are looked at in a three-step qualifying examination.

"Due to the variety of our study program, we have the possibility to look where we really want to go for our job."

— Max Angsten

Learn in our podcast why music plays a central part in the sound engineering study course and how the German rock band 'Die Toten Hosen' is involved here. Let professor Dagmar Birwe and student Max Angsten give you a general view of the 'Audio and Video' study course at the Robert Schumann Hochschule, where our managing director Norbert Lehmann also completed his studies to become a sound engineer.
