Sound engineers or audio engineers work on the technical aspects of sound and music production by mixing, reproducing and manipulating the equalization and electronic effects of sound. Sound engineers don't have to work strictly in music. Some engineers end up designing and controlling the sound at conferences, in theaters, and in any other venue that requires sound projection for an audience. By controlling microphones, sound levels, and outputs, sound engineers combine their well-trained ears with their knowledge of acoustics to produce the best quality of sound for a variety of purpose.
Audio engineers are responsible for maintaining and operating sound recording and/or broadcast equipment. On any given day, they may work with musical artists, television news stations, movie directors, radio stations, or video game companies, with the ultimate goal of producing high-quality, crystal-clear sounds. They set-up, operate and repair audio recording/broadcast equipment, stay informed of new development in sound engineering technologies, coordinate with editors, directors, video operators, and other sound engineers when necessary, choose appropriate audio equipment for use in various situations, and plan and schedule work in an effective and efficient manner. Career opportunities for the sound engineer and technicians are available in various fields like radio stations, tv channels, studios, multimedia design, animation, advertising firms, movies and more. One can opt for specialized courses in technical skills such as sequencing, mastering, editing, and recording. With the proper experience, he/she can become studio managers. These students also opt for courses in universities abroad. There is strong competition for work in this field. Jobs are not often advertised, so you will have to be persistent and show initiative.
Candidates who have passed 10+2 in physics, chemistry, and mathematics as compulsory subjects, can pursue Sound Engineering in bachelor's degree level. Candidates who have passed bachelor's degree in Sound Engineering are eligible to pursue Sound Engineering in master and doctoral level at Indian and foreign universities.
