Want a quick peek into what an audio engineer does? Then watch this short video by Kevin Weber, owner of Spliggityfidge in Emeryville, CA as he walks you through some of the things you need to know to enter this profession.
So much of what Kevin says is mirrored in the coursework and teaching approach of Cogswell College’s Digital Audio Technology degree program.
He talks about the importance of working in a fun and aesthetically pleasing environment. Cogswell’s studios and classes are designed around these principles.
His background in engineering was key to his success since it emphasized problem-solving. Cogswell focuses on giving students the tools they need to tackle any challenge.
He also discussed the need for a technical education but also just jumping in taking on some recording projects. His advice meshes well with Cogswell’s emphasis on providing project-based learning experiences.
All of the changes in the audio industry have opened up a lot of opportunities for skilled audio engineers.
