DIPLOMA IN SOUND ENGINEERING (BENGALURU)



Sound plays an indispensable role in film, television and web productions, and it is impossible to imagine (or enjoy) a live concert without quality sound. The individuals and teams that work behind the scenes to create this sound are in massive demand today, primarily due to the number and magnitude of projects that are made every single day of the year.

Sound engineering calls for a high level of expertise and creativity, since it involves capturing, recording, editing, mixing, mastering and producing audio effectively. For those looking to enter this rapidly-evolving domain, it is extremely important that they undergo formal training.

What is sound engineering?
Sound engineering involves the technical and creative processes of recording music and sound. Sound engineers do this by mixing and manipulating the electronic effects of sound and reproducing it. The music or sound is captured with the help of microphones, recorders or recording software and then edited and mixed as required. Sound engineers have immense scope in fields like film and television, radio, music studios, concert venues, computer games and theatres.
Can I apply for this course after class 10th?
No. The eligibility criterion for this course is the successful completion of class 12th/high school/equivalent.
Do I need a science/musical background to do this course?
No, you do not need a science background to do this course. Apart from completing your class 12th, you also need to have an avid interest in music (and sound, in general). Our course is designed to train music engineers and producers of different genres. We do not teach music and hence it does not matter what musical background you have.
What is the strength of a batch?
The number of students in each batch depends on the course, the city and the number of enrolments we are accepting for that year according to the availability of our studio facilities and faculty recommendations.
What degrees/certification do you offer for your sound engineering courses?
We offer both degree and diploma courses. Ideally, if a student is in 12th or has completed 12th, he/she can apply for the degree course. If the student is in his/her final year of graduation or is a graduate, the Diploma course is the way to go. We also offer a Certificate Program in Live Soundwhich is a three week programme for people who are specifically interested in Live Sound.
